how do you write one and how is it meant to be layed out?

it may be different with different hospitals but within my maternity notes file there is a big blank section where i can basically write anything i like in terms of how i want my birth to go. i dont think theres is a "right" way to do it, if you don't have that section within your notes i'd suggest you just write it on paper and put it inside. just basically write down your definate do's and don't wants, eg, if you are adament you want an epidural, write that. if you want to use the birthing pools, write that etc. and you don't even need to have one, i've heard most midwives don't even bother looking at them and you end up having to just tell them what you want! hope this helps

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
