Recently, I’ve noticed that expecting moms are wanting more. More than just the basics, she wants something special, she wants her own personalized birth experience. After all, she’s spent a lot of time seeking out the perfect accessories for the nursery, the cutest outfit to bring baby home in, planning her meals for after baby arrives, and so on. So of course, she wants her birth to be just as special.
How do we offer this new personalized birth experience? Its almost impossible to create a great birth plan birth without having had birth previously or experienced being with moms as they give birth. This is why working with a professional can come in handy.
Not all moms are interested in having a doula attend their birth. But ALL moms want to have the best possible experience and outcome. Working with a doula or birth educator (like myself) to create a personalized birth experience plan can be the best of both worlds, especially for moms on a budget. I offer free birth planning consultations and birth planning workshops. Why? Because I am passionate about helping moms have a better birth. Contact me to setup a time to chat.
Here are some things to consider as you plan:
- Where do I want to give birth?
- Who will be with me?
- What do I want to remember about my baby’s birth?
- When do I need to go to the hospital?
- Why is it important to create a plan?
