I'm thinking maybe b/c the things we do aren't "the norm" that I don't want to walk in and hand over a sheet of paper that says "I'm going to be difficult!" or makes them roll their eyes or project negative feelings at me or something? I'm not quite sure what it is but something about it just feels like I'm handing over a paper that makes judging me a lot easier.
That's how I kind of feel. I mean, I'm not doing anything super out of the norm, but I don't want to walk in and hand them a birth plan and have them think that I'm going to be difficult.
I want to be able to explain to them that it's only what I want, and that if the baby has other ideas, we can adjust. Sometimes, birth plans have to be tossed aside for safety of mom or baby.
