Is there a birth plan template for people who want the drugs? Ive never seen one but I imagine there must be.

I thought it was standard now but our hospital doesn't take the baby out of your sight unless there is a complication. They do skin to skin right away. They also dont put the baby in the nursery unless you specifically ask for her to be taken there. There is a lactation consultant there everyday and they even have some kind of class you can attend while in the hospital (although I dont see how that works if you are laid up in bed). So it seems unnecessary to specify these things. But I would like to make it clear that I want to be as comfortable and pain free as possible and Im not bothered in the slightest by drugs.
