What is a Birth Plan?
A Birth Plan is a document that outlines a pregnant person’s (ie your) labour, delivery and postpartum preferences. Birth Plans act as checklists of topics to consider before giving birth and outline what you wish to happen during childbirth in an ideal situation. As such, Birth Plans allow you to manage your preferences for childbirth. Copies of your Birth Plan should be provided to your childbirth support team (eg your birth partner, midwife and doctor) to make them aware of your wishes.
