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.
