Birth plans are wonderful things. They allow you to rehearse the big day, and make important decisions about your care long before the drama of labour begins. Having a well thought out birth plan enables you to go into the experience feeling prepared and confident. However, despite your best intentions, circumstances may arise during your birth which force you to alter your plan. Medical staff should be attentive to your desires for your baby’s birth, but their ultimate responsibility is ensuring that you end up with a safe, successful delivery and a healthy baby.
