    When will I get a chance to go through my birth plan and related questions? I've got a few things I want to ask but every time I've been so far they've been running at least 20 mins late and I feel very rushed out the door. But I just go and think "I'm sure they will bring it up nearer the time" Anyone know when they might be willing to discuss it with me? Is one of the later appointments specifically for this purpose? X

    My midwife has never mentioned a birth plan and during my appointments there has never been enough time to do one anyway. It might be best mentioning it to her next time u see her that you would like to spend some time discussing it with her and see what she says x

    I was told we will talk about birth plan at next appointment (36 weeks) - so hope I see the same midwife next time, as usually I see different people and they don't seem to stick to the same schedules as each other!

    Thanks for your replies! So does anyone know if (generally) the hospital needs to know in advance if I want to use the birth pool? Or is it just a case of mentioning it whenever you go in and hoping it's free? (assuming I'm not induced and it happens at a random time) also (generally) will we get a permit to park the car when I go into labour? Xx

    Didnt get to do one last time and no talk of this time either.

    I think you can state in notes you want pool but it's luck of draw when u get to hosp if it's free or not as it cant be reserved/pre booked. Just mention when u go into hosp u want to use if free
