Family Birth Center | Birth Plan

Your Birth Plan

No one can predict exactly what your baby's birth will be like, but most women have some idea of what they hope will happen. One of the best ways to learn about labor and delivery is to develop a birth plan. A birth plan is a way for you to communicate to the health care provider what you envision your birth experience to be like.

What a Birth Plan might include:

  • Who will be your support person?
  • Would you like to have music to help you relax?
  • What are your preferences as far as pain management is concerned? (Some women want their childbirth to be as quick and painless as possible, others want natural labor with minimal medical involvement.)

Your list of To-Do's:

  • Start a baby file to store information on childbirth and parenting.
  • Start a list of questions you will want to ask your doctor.
  • Find an obstetrician or other physician that is right for you.
  • Check on Prepared Childbirth classes.

Whether it's finding a Lamaze class or writing a birth plan, the labor & delivery nurses at Trinity Health can discuss your options and help you plan for your pregnancy.
