I didn't have a birth plan when I had my daughter, which was probably a good thing since I would have been disappointed when she was born six weeks early and all my plans went out the window.

Great book to read in the second trimester. It covers all the traditional choices and options for birthing. For the most part it has a balanced viewpoint. I think it's best read before a birthing class to give the class more depth. Once I finished it was easy to write a birth plan and feel most certain on what kind of birth options I would like.
