During our prenatal classes, our teacher wanted us to create a birth plan. I was and am anti birth plan. I don't believe in making plans for things I can't control. It simply makes me anxious and sets expectations. When I have expectations, the type A in me springs forward. My birth plan was simply this, "Only Quinn is allowed in the room. Don't tell me to calm down."
My birth plan came true! I realized after having a baby that Hen's birth story was a battle scar and one I'm so proud to wear. While I stand by not having a birth plan - I want to share the story.
