This blog is an introduction to the comprehensive birth plan workbook. Download the PDF by adding it to your cart from the top of the blog. Note that the workbook goes along with the class I teach on birth plans. It can be done on your own at your own pace, but it is easier if you take the class before you start filling in the workbook. Here’s what we talk about in this guide.
Each section lists your options or provides space to write in your decisions and preferences.
There are no cookie cutters in birth. Every birth is unique. This is not a plan specifically for any location or type of pain management. This is not a natural birth plan. If you want to go unmedicated, check that box. If you want to get an epidural, check that box. If you want to wait and see how it goes, that’s okay too. This is not a hospital plan or a home birth plan. This is an educational guide to know your options and choose what is right for you.
The fill-in form
Just want the fill-in birth plan to give your OB or midwife? You can download that on its own from the top of the blog. Add to cart. Check out. Get it emailed to you immediately. Print it out and take your time filling it in. The power of a birth plan isn’t in the actual plan. Each person will have their own recipe for what’s right for them and their family. The power of a birth plan is in the process of gaining education about your maternity care.
