Birth plans are ideas and expectations that you have about the birth of your baby. They are used to help people, who come into contact with you during your labor and birth, know a bit more about you, how you have prepared for this baby, and what you want from the birth.

A lot of people misunderstand and assume that you are writing orders for people to follow. Ah, if only labor would allow us to do this.

there are many topics that may be addressed in a birth plan. All of these topics should be discussed prenatally with your care provider.

By coming to the next hospital tour on:

Tuesday June 28th

{we meet in the main lobby of the hospital at 5:30}

We will go over a birth plan worksheet… so that the staff at Partners in Women’s Health and the staff at the hospital, who you don’t know, will know your preferences.

There are many types of birth plans in written format. Some are many pages long, and some are just a single paragraph that simply "set the tone" for the birth. There is always a happy medium and only you will know what works for you.

 

Good luck and good birth!
