Have You Shared Your Birth Plan with All the Right People?
I've noticed an increase in the number of women creating birth plans. It's really good to see birth plans on charts and receive report from fellow nurses that this patient has created a birth plan. Birth plans are important for helping establish desires for childbirth and care thereafter. But once that plan is created, in order to see it executed it's imperative that you discuss your wishes with your healthcare provider. With your physician. There is no other way to ensure your doctor is willing to adhere to your plan if don't discuss it with them. Having this discussion may be daunting but it's vitally important in ensuring you receive the care you desire.
