A birth plan is created to help guide your thinking through topics that are important to discuss with your birth team. Whether you prefer a natural, non-medicated birth or a medically assisted delivery, a birth plan is a perfect tool for having your desires known during labor. There are many options, but don’t feel anxious. Thoughtfully considering areas of concern is empowering and helps prepare you for better communication. It is important to keep your birth plan simple and easy to understand. Providing a copy to all those involved with your labor can eliminate miscommunication, help labor go smoother, and keep your wishes from being dismissed.

A visual birth plan is a great way to do this and I can help! By using simple icons to depict your wishes, you let those around you know what you’d like or not like during labor and recovery.  It allows all parties involved, including your partner, to have a better, more simple understanding of your wishes.  Let me help you formulate a visual birth plan and I’ll put the plan together!  Here is an example. $50-
