Ok so in a few weeks i will be having a c-section to delivery my DS. I am trying to put a birthplan together to take with me. I am not sure how to put one together though, I have used google to find some ideas on what to place in it but I could still use some help to do this if anyone has any advice that I could get please.

maybe start with just making a list of the things that are important to you? I had my son by emergency c section. One thing that bothered me was I only got to see my baby for a few minutes and then he was taken to be fixed up and do all of the needed first born baby stuff and then all of my family in waiting got to hold him. I was the last person to hold my baby! I cant explain how much this upset me. I really felt like I was robbed of that moment with him. I wish I had other ideas to share...I do know that with this baby, I will insist that I am the first (or at least second after my husband)to hold him and that he stays near me the whole time.
