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.
Our hospitals birth plan packet has drug options in it. It has various options and you just check next to which you'd prefer. (IV, Epi, etc.)
