I believe one of the best assets to your birth, regardless of what kind of birth you are planning, is a well written birth plan. I encourage every one of my clients to do this, even if they feel like it is unneeded. A birth plan is like your road map, giving everyone involved a clear direction on where to go through your labor, birth, postpartum, and even for your new little one. And, as with any journey, considerations for the unexpected. Having had an unplanned cesarean birth, I personally know how valuable it is to prepare for the unexpected, so to have as smooth of a transition as possible, with you maintaining as much autonomy as possible.
Along with making clear plans with everyone involved in your care, your birth plan is a tool, empowering you to better advocate for yourself and child.
