Birth plan with an elective CS?
With W I wrote a birth plan as I was meant to be having a straight forward vaginal delivery. none of it went to plan and I ended up with a emergency CS.
This time option having an elective CS. So do you still write a birth plan? I'm just wondering if there's much point as its kind of all already planned out and arranged if you have an elective isn't it and you don't really have many choices of different things like you do through your labour.
If you did a birth plan what did you put in it? And when do you give it to them? I have a 34 week appointment with the consultant to book the date etc so do I give it then or Ron the day when I go into hospital?
Also, did anyone's husband look round the screen during surgery? Is it allowed? It was all a bit chaotic last time and he concentrated on me during the op as I didn't really know what was going on and kept wanting to be sick, but am hoping it will be lots calmer this time and was wondering if he'd be able to see baby actually being lifted out? He's not sure yet if he would want to but if he does it would be nice to have the option as he doesn't get to see her being pushed out with a normal delivery so don't want him to feel like he's missed out on that.
