There is no set format for a birth plan; it can consist of a few simple instructions, or detailed notes. It is important to include those issues that most concern you, and to list your preferences, but try not to sound too confrontational. Discuss the plan with your doctor or midwife, and ask them to sign and date it. You need two copies, one for yourself and one to attach to your hospital notes.
