Creating a Birth Plan

What is a birth plan?

It’s essentially a blueprint of the type of birthing experience you’d like to have. It can cover anything from not allowing students in the room to requesting delayed cord clamping.

Working in healthcare I knew that I didn’t want to be “that patient” who is overly demanding, inflexible and a control freak but there were certain things that I wanted in place, such as, I wanted to attempt a natural birth but please let me know when the “point of no return is” in case I miss my window for an epidural (I ended up getting an epidural btw)

I was gifted our Leachco Podster and in all honesty I thought I wouldn’t use it but it ended up being a Godsend.

I was really touched that one of my friends, who is a expecting her first little one, reached out to me and told me that she took the wipe warmer off her registry after reading my post on Things no one tells you when you’re pregnant
 which of course made me think of other items that are so unnecessary.
