Depends: Depending on the size and location of your birthmark, there are certain lasers that can remove them as well as a doctor removing or resecting the birth mark. None of these are 100% guarantee for cosmetic results and will leave some type of a mark on your skin. I suggest seeing a plastic surgeon or a cosmetic dermatologist for an evaluation. Most initial consults are free.

No: Most women do not create a birth plan. Millions of women have given birth successfully since the beginning of humanity without having a birth plan. For some creating a birth plan provides comfort and sense of control over what can be a scary time. Do not feel pressured to create one if you do not want to.
A 26-year-old member asked:

When will I be allowed to start eating after birth?

Depends on type: If you have a vaginal delivery, you may start eating as soon as the placenta has delivered. This is a precaution in case the placenta will not deliver and you need a procedure. If you have a cesarean section, you may be allowed to have ice chips, but you will probably not be able to eat for 8 or 12 hours. Some physicians like to wait until you pass gas to show that air is going through.

I feed my c sections immediately without any problems, many doctors have different practice patterns, and various hospitals may have different policies, but these are great questions to bring up at your visits!
