Yes, I'm old and rickety...but, I HATE birth plans!! Especially those that include NO vag exams unless she needs to push (wth), or NO IV access (wth), or NO fetal monitoring (WTH!!) etc.....It just annoys me to no end that a girl comes in and tries to tell me what is best for her and her unborn baby, and totally interferes with efforts to keep her and her baby safe.Then there is the sig other that really annoys me by being the patients mouth piece. "No, she doesn't need pain meds", or "No, she doesn't want to lay off of her back".(when having variables down to 60x60...UGGGG!!These people need to just have their babies at home, and leave my nursing license out of it!!!Anyone else bothered by birth plans? Maybe it's just me.
