I think you have a nice plan. The only thing I *personally* would be worried about are all the "ifs" for interventions b/c I think sometimes that opens the door to say you're not against them, ya know? And if you're not then that's fine too. For example, I didn't have anything in my birth plan about pitocin b/c I feel like that just opens the door for them to say it was absolutely necessary, even if it wasn't. If you're having your baby in a hospital, I feel like they're always going to make you feel like every intervention is crucial. That's just me and my perception though. The only other recommendation I have is maybe making it a little shorter and not doing it as much in full sentences. I just remember from my Bradley class they wanted us to make it as to the point as possible so if someone was looking over it while you're in labor, they're not having to take 15 mins to read everything.

I think you have a lot of wonderful ideas and are definitely on the right track! Good luck!
