The No-Birth Plan Birth Plan

As a doula, I almost always suggest a birth preference conversation and loose plan for parents-to-be during a prenatal meeting. And while I believe this is an effective tool for those who want to learn all about the medical terms and procedures associated with birth, sometimes the birth preferences, when written down and presented as a rigid document, actually pose a challenge post delivery. Imagine things don't go in the way you planned for, disappointment in yourself and distrust in your body are heavy burdens to carry, aren't they?
