I'm working on my birth plan. I know, I know...birth plan, schmirth plan. But I'll feel better having something in writing, even if it all gets thrown to the wayside!
Anyway, my OBs office gave a sample plan, which is relatively in line with what DH and I envision. I'm editing it slightly before sending to my Bradley instructor, who has offered to review it and offer input. One of the bullet points says the following: "I would prefer to wait up to one hour for the baby to receive eye drops and a vitamin k shot."
I have googled and can't find anything about why this would be something to ask for. Delayed cord clamping? Sure. But does anyone know why this is something I might want / not want? I suppose it's one of those things that might not really matter anyway, I just don't want to put something in my plan - or leave something out - without fully understanding what it means and why I'm asking for it.
FWIW, I can totally ask my OB at my next appt on Nov 12th, but would love any insight that any of you experienced mamas or even FTMs may have.
