I had a birthplan because initially I was with an OB and was planning a hospital birth. When I decided on the homebirth I still kept the birthplan in case of transfer. Nothing on the birthplan related to my homebirth plans but my MW new exactly what I wanted and there was no chance of anyone else attending my birth so it wasn't necessary. If there is a possibility you might be attended by someone other than your primary it would probably be beneficial to have a plan. You may also want to write a simple plan just in case of transfer so it would be easier to have your wishes respected in the hospital.

I just found these links:

http://www.homebirth.org.uk/plan.htm

http://www.babyworld.co.uk/information/bir...mebirthplan.asp

They are both from the UK but they may help.
