There are so many books and so much information out there about childbirth that trying to learn it all can be overwhelming. Yet, it can sometimes feel like doctors and hospital staff do not adequately explain all of the pros and cons of the interventions you may face during your birth. Do you know the choices you have? Do you know the risks interventions may cause to you, your birth and your baby?
I have done the research for you, and I have provided you with concise but detailed information about what each intervention is, what you need to know about it, and what your choices are. The manual also includes sample birth plans and extra resources for you to learn more if you want to!
I am passionate about the importance of birth plans, and feel they are integral to helping you understand everything that may happen in birth and what you can and cannot make choices about. It’s an invaluable tool to educate yourself and communicate clearly with your healthcare provider and your family about your wishes for your birth experience.
