Here is an example of a birth planning checklist. It’s important to remember, however, that each birth is unique … and babies rarely arrive according to “plan.” Hopefully, this list will help you think about some of your labor and delivery preferences, so you can share them with your doctor and your labor nurses.
Because the birth process is unpredictable, we encourage you to be flexible about your birth plan. Remember: the primary job of your doctor and labor nurses is to safeguard your health and the health of your new baby – and sometimes, labor and delivery preferences may need to be sacrificed for health reasons.
