Ok guys, birth plans. Everyone has one and no, they don’t always go according to plan. For example I thought I would push for an hour and then be able to do skin to skin first thing.. What happened was I pushed for two hours, ended up having to have forceps used and then they checked him before we even got to do skin to skin. You have to be flexible with your birth plan. The doctors will do what is best for you and the baby, you have to remember that! If you aren’t flexible, it will add stress to you and the baby when the doctors change the plan last minute and I know we’ve ALL heard “Stress is bad for the baby” before!
