In our birth planning session, we will walk you through the various options you have for your labor, delivery, and postpartum care in whatever birth setting you are planning for AND in the hospital setting, in case of transfer or emergency. We will go over each stage of labor and help you understand the different comfort measures, pain management methods, interventions, and newborn procedures that you have at home, at birth centers, and in the hospital. We will also go over your birth bag checklist for whichever setting you chose AND the hospital to make sure you are well prepared for labor! We will leave you with educational resources for you and your partner(s) to download and learn from. Your doula will record your preferences and requests and send you a copy of the record, which you can share with your providers and have at your birth. We can also email a copy to your provider. (Some providers' quality of care improves significantly when working with patients who are backed by organizations and agencies. We are happy to have your back!)
