How To Create A Birth Plan

pregnant coupleIf you’re pregnant, listen up! Creating a birth plan may be one of the most important things to do during your pregnancy. It’s important to outline what you want for the birth of your baby and to make sure those around you know your desires as well. A birth plan is a summary on how you would like your labor to be carried out. This may include where you would like to have your baby, who you would like to be by your side during the labor, what kind of atmosphere you want and your feelings on medicines and procedures during labor and delivery. While a birth plan is only a guideline for how you would like your baby to be delivered, it can be an extremely useful tool. Not only does a birth plan outline your requests, but it also helps you to become more informed about your options.
