Birth Plan Options
You may have heard about birth plans and wonder if you need one. The answer
is it's totally up to you! You don’t need to have a birth plan
to give birth, but it can be useful to help you think about and communicate
your desires for your baby's birth and newborn care. It contains details
about which birth techniques you'd like to try, how you want your
pain managed, types of care and feeding for your baby, and other details
around labor and delivery.
If you choose to have a birth plan, we recommend that you take it to your
OB visit by your 36 week checkup so that you can review it with your physician
and have it be scanned and entered into your medical record. Please bring
it when you come to deliver. Your care team will discuss any reasons for
deviation from your plan but will do their absolute best to meet your
birthing plan goals.

Once again, we want to say thank you for trusting The Women’s Care
Center at Covenant Children’s to deliver your baby and we are looking
forward to seeing you soon!
