Earth Mama’s Free Birth Plan is a list intended to be a conversation-starter between you and your health care provider — so you can find answers to questions you didn’t even know you had! Because when it comes to birth preparedness, you might be too tired, excited or overwhelmed to even know where to begin. Which, let’s be honest: is totally normal.
There are a lot of options below, but try not to let it make you feel anxious. It’s a good thing to know that options are available to you — because informing yourself, and thoughtfully considering any areas of concern, is not only empowering, but helps prepare you for better communication. Let this list help guide your thinking as you assemble your birth team, wherever you give birth: at a birth center, a hospital or right at home.
So. Settle back, sip a soothing cup of organic herbal tea, click the link and get started! And, if you feel like something’s missing or needs to change, please let us know! We’re always updating the Birth Plan. It’s not a static document, because guess what? The way people give birth is always changing, like life — so the Earth Mama Birth Plan needs to stay flexible, too.
P.S. Don’t forget to create your free Earth Mama® Postpartum Lying-In Plan too!
