Topic: Creating a Birthing Plan

Planning has always been an integral part of any thing we do. This also applies when you give birth. Even though some people choose to be spontaneous, it still helps to come up with a birthing plan which the mother and the father or whoever would be the mother's support system should discuss. This is also something you need to discuss with your health practitioner, OB or midwife prior to giving birth.

It is already expected that not everything you put in your birthing plan will happen. However, it helps for the mother to inform the people who's going to be with her during the birthing process on her preference. 

Here are some of the things that need to be considered when creating a birthing plan:

  • Normal delivery or cesarean?

  • Unmedicated or with epidural/painless?

  • Do you want to freely walk around and not be attached to the fetal monitor?

  • Are you okay with using pytocin or any form of inducing labor?

  • Mother's support system should be with the mother during labor and giving birth?

  • Unang Yakap must be performed - immediate skin to skin by the mother and child and breastfeeding?

  • Delayed cord clamping?

  • Delay bathing?

  • Delay vaccination?

I remember having my birth plan and discussed it with my OB. I was very clear that I wanted an unmedicated and normal delivery. Even though not everything went as I have planned, it was a birth I can say that I was in control of.

Any pregnant women here who have already prepared there birthing plan? 

Any pregnant women who need help with their birthing plan? 

For those mothers who already gave birth, did you have a birthing plan and did it go as planned?
