What is a birth plan?

What is a birth plan?

Our providers encourage you to create a birth plan and will even help you develop it. A birth plan plots out how you would like to experience labor and childbirth. Birth plans can include music, lighting, pictures, activity, hydrotherapy, natural childbirth, medication, epidural, C-section, family involvement, partner involvement, camera use, first breastfeeding, homecoming, or any other aspect of labor, delivery, and newborn care you’d like to plan. Your doctor or Certified Nurse Midwife can help you formulate it or look it over to be sure it’s safe.
