Your Birth Plan
Create a personalized birth plan with help from a friendly and helpful birth advisor at Adventist HealthCare. Talk to your advisor by phone or in person at the hospital.
What’s a Birth Plan?
A birth plan is an outline of your preferences for labor and delivery. Your advisor will ask questions, listen and help you create a plan that’s right for you and your family.
What to Include
Your birth advisor will talk to you about your options for your birth experience, respect your choices and help communicate your plan to your care team. You’ll talk about:
- Location you want to deliver your baby
- Personal needs or preferences that will help your doctor or hospital best prepare for your care
- Preparing for birth
- Ways your support person can participate
A low-intervention birth means, whenever possible, you’ll deliver your baby without medical interventions such as induction, certain medications, an epidural, Cesarean section (C-section) and other treatments. If medically necessary, your care team will be ready to provide interventions.
