Waterbirth plan samples

Would anyone mind starting their waterbirth plan, I am planning a hospital waterbirth but the template on the NHS site does miss out a lot of sections. Anyone used or have a template they found handy?

I found the NHS one wasn't quite right for us either. I found it really helpful to write a massive plan for me & partner to get really clear on what (in an ideal world) we'd like, and the 'what if' plans in case any if that was needed. Then we made a 1 page summary for midwives, with the main points. They're so busy! It seemed to work for us... Does that help any? X

Welovegrapes I have been told that some hospitals won't allow a natural 3rd stage or delivery of placenta while your in the pool. Have you checked with your mw?
