i think there is the potential that any birth plan can change. and i have heard some midwives dont even look at them. but there are certain things if you feel strongly about you could mention anyway.
i have 3 and half weeks left and have yet to do one. but i will be writing a few ideas down.
-i dont want an epidural or morphine/pethadine but would like to be offered it if required.
-i want baby delivered straight to my chest and not cleaned first
-i want my partner to cut the cord
-vitamin k given to baby by injection, not orally.
other things i will include when i decided will be- i haven't found out the sex of my baby so will write whether i want the midwife to tell me or to find out ourselves when baby passed to us. if i want to have the injection to speed up delivery of placenta or if i want to let it delivery naturally.
i am sure i will think of other things but for me they are the main issues i want control over.
good luck with it.

i have got one, but mainly because i like writing things down! i no what i do want and dont want-hopfully!!!! so i will remember anyway and so does OH/MUM who will be at birth. if they want copy i will give them one if not like i say i no what i want and am aware that i no things can change these plans anyway.
