Birth plan

As you’re imagining your baby’s birth, what do you envision?

  • Do you want to have pain medication?
  • Do you want a “natural” childbirth?
  • Do you want someone special to cut the umbilical cord?
  • What should your Welia Health team know about you or your pregnancy?

A birth plan helps to answer some of these key questions. It’s a document that you create before delivery. A birth plan outlines to the OB team what’s important to you, helping you to have the best possible birthing experience. Here’s a guide for creating a birth plan and a downloadable worksheet for you to use during planning.
