As promised, here’s my updated birth plan. This is just an example of a layout you can use. You can go to www.birthplan.com and login to create your own custom birthplan, where they’ll ask you all of the pertinent questions and you pick and choose what you want to use. For more information regarding writing a birthplan please see my past blog.

You’ll want to prep your birthplan at least a month in advance and review it with your doctor. S/he may offer advice or confirm things that s/he will be able to do, as well as other things that may be an issue if s/he isn’t the doctor on call during your delivery. In that case, i’ll be up to you to find out your legal grounds. For example, there is a doctor at the hospital I’ll be attending who loves to perform episiotomies whether the woman consents or not. I have prepped my doula and husband that he is not allowed to cut me and am looking into further legal rights prior to going into labor, just in case he is the doctor on call. This is the type of situation you want to discuss with your doctor. In this case, my doctor confirmed that what I had heard about the other doctor was true. Don’t be nervous when talking to your doctor about your birthplan, as it’s better to be on the same page.

Birth Plan – Holly H.R.
Due Date: 06/28/2010

 

Nick and Holly

Patient of Dr. Harold Chotiner
05/13/2010

Thank you for allowing us to birth our baby in your hospital. We have been married for 8 years and this is our second child together. We have studied Hypnobirthing and hypnosis. We wish to perform these breathing techniques during labor with as few interruptions as possible. Please allow us to naturally breathe the baby out and to give my body time to relax and to do what it naturally does best. Please do not offer pain meds. We would appreciate the following items to be adhered to during our stay at your hospital.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support during this very special time in our life.

Sincerely,

Holly and Nick R.

MONITORING

  • I wish to have intermittent monitoring only, unless it is required by the condition of the baby.

LABOR

  • I wish to be able to move around, be free to walk and change position at will throughout labor.
  • I would like to be able to have fluids by mouth.
  • I will be bringing my own music to play during labor and would like the lights kept low.
  • I would prefer to keep the number of vaginal exams to a minimum.

LABOR AUGMENTATION/INDUCTION

  • I do not wish to have the amniotic membrane ruptured artificially.
  • I would prefer to be allowed to try changing position and other natural methods (walking, nipple stimulation) before pitocin is administered. Pitocin must not be administered without my consent.

DELIVERY

  • I would like to be allowed to choose the position in which I give birth, including squatting.
  • Even if I am fully dilated, and assuming the baby is not in distress, I would like to try to wait until I feel the urge to push before beginning the pushing phase.
  • I would appreciate having the room lights turned low for the actual delivery and having the room quiet.
  • I would like to have the baby placed on my stomach/chest immediately after delivery.
  • Hypnobirthing is our primary delivery method. Please refrain from disrupting the breathing process.
  • The baby will be breathed out of the womb. Please allow my body to naturally breathe the baby out so that I may not rip during delivery.

ANESTHESIA/PAIN MEDICATION

  • I realize that many pain medications exist; I’ll ask for them if I need them.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER DELIVERY

  • I would like to have Nick cut the cord after it has stopped pulsating.
  • I would like to hold the baby while I deliver the placenta.
  • I would like to have the baby evaluated and bathed in my presence or my husband’s presence.
  • I do not want a routine injection of pitocin after the delivery to aid in expelling the placenta.
  • The baby is only to receive a shot of Vitamin K and the eye medication in either my husband’s presence or mine and no other shots are to be given or tests to be run without our consent.

EPISIOTOMY

  • I would prefer not to have an episiotomy.

CESAREAN

  • Unless absolutely necessary, I would like to avoid a Cesarean.
  • If my primary care provider determines that a Cesarean delivery is needed, I would like to obtain a second opinion.
  • I would like Nick present at all times if the baby requires a Cesarean delivery and for him to be handed the baby immediately after birth.
  • So I can view the birth, I would like the screen lowered just before delivery of the baby.

POSTPARTUM

  • I do not wish to be separated from my baby and would like the baby to be in the room with me at all times.

BREASTFEEDING

  • I do not wish to have any bottles or artificial nipples given to the baby (including glucose water or plain water).

PHOTO

  • I would like to take still photographs during labor and the birth.

OTHER

  • My support people are my doula, my acupuncturist, and my husband. I would like them to be present at all times.
