My bplan is similar to what's been posted here - esp. the Vit K, that it should only be administered if trauma occurred during delivery.
Thank you guys for adding the C-section wants in there - something I hadn't considered, but Oh so important just in case.
My OB/practice is unfortunately one of those where whoever's on call, that's your delivery Doc. I've looked into changing, but at this point, I really like my MD despite that she might not be there. She's been Wonderful about helping with my bplan and letting me know what the hospital procedure is -- they don't cut the cord before it stops pulsating, give you the baby immediately for skin on skin for an hour/do procedures bed-side, etc. These are still on my list, but it's good to know their procedure ahead of time.
Going to the birthing center was KEY for me, meeting the nurses and talking to them about my wants. And luckily my doula has witnessed many births at the center, so she had great help to offer.
One of the nurses did say that they'd had a few doula's who essentially cut off communication b/w mom & nurse... which I found a bit odd. Immediate question for my doula then :-) And she said that her role will be to speak for me when I can't answer a question, but by no means to dissuade the nurses from talking to me directly.
single, WAH mom, to my only very kind & sweet lil man
