You can work through this and communicate your wishes by creating a birth plan. While birth plans are not intended to be followed to the letter (mainly because that usually ends up being impossible), the exercise of creating them can prompt you to think and ask questions about aspects of the birthing experience, including a potential C-section, and facilitate communication with your doctor. Writing a birth plan isn’t as hard as it seems, you just have to sit down and do it so that you can discuss any concerns with your doctor and put a few copies in your hospital bag. Leave room for things that could happen and have it stated clearly what you would like or questions you would need to have answered.

By Naomi Liddell | 2018-06-18T10:13:21+01:00 June 18th, 2018 | Categories: Health | 25 Comments. I have an appointment with my consultant this week to discuss my birth plan for the impending baby.

Creating a birth plan ahead of time helps you make decisions about how you want your labor and delivery to be, and lets others know your wishes.

Create a Birth Plan: Includes a Sample Birth Plan & Blank Birth Plan to Fill Out For Labor & Delivery The birth of my first children – who are twins – was carefully planned far before I arrived at the hospital, and settled into the labor and delivery unit. A birth plan is a document that lets your maternity healthcare provider know what your preferences are during labor, birth, immediately after birth, and recovery. In your birth plan, you can prepare for things like how to manage labor pain, if you are okay with residents in the room, and how you would like to push. A birth plan is just that — a plan that communicates your wishes and goals for before, during and after labor and delivery.

In it, parents-to-be can offer up their best-case birthing scenario: how they’d ideally like labor and delivery to play out if all goes to “plan.”. You will want to spend time thinking through the details of your hopes and desires for this special event by creating a birth plan. Start by writing down as many thoughts and plans for the upcoming birth as you can. Then prioritize your preferences into a simple, clear, one-page statement of your preferences and provide a copy of the plan to everyone directly involved in the birth.

Birth plans are best kept short and to the point lots of details may be lost on medical support staff. You may wish to create two plans: one for you and your support team (coach, doula, etc.) and another, more concise document (about a page long) for your caregiver and the hospital/birth.

  • I can relate sooo much!! I got preeclampsia with my first pregnancy and I had to have an emergency c-section too (my daughter was premature). I also elected to have another one with my second. It’s such a scary experience and honestly the recovery is so painful and so hard. Sometimes people judge moms who don’t have natural births and it’s painful to hear because we go through so much ��. Great video!
