Hi, it’s me again 😀, let’s discus your birth plan: arrival. We’ve discussed people and environment. Arrival is such a broad subject. It also is different depending on which “environment” you are choosing.
One of the many things to think about for your baby’s arrival is getting familiar with the facility you have chosen. Once you have familiarized yourself with it. Let’s start thinking about how is going to take you to the hospital. For me, it was always going to be my husband. You will need someone you trust to advocate for you, someone you trust to keep your best interests at heart.
We all have this idea about what we expect to happen. I thought my second child was going to be as hard as my first. My first was induced and I did not have a great experience, in all, at the hospital I chose. It was my second child that makes me realize how important it is to have plan. By the time we got to the hospital, I was in a lot of pain. My husband had to take care of everything because I couldn’t see past my own nose with all the pain I was in. My husband took care of everything and I am so grateful that I didn’t have to worry about a thing except managing my pain. I could have used an article such as Birth Plan: Arrival.
Parents.com suggest we think about 3 things upon arrival…. 1) pubic hair may be shaven by doc. However, do not give yourself unnecessary stress trying to do it yourself. Labor and Delivery nurses and doctors have seen so many va ja ja’s , they really don’t even notice if your “landscaped” lol. 2) you might need an enema. You should probably sort your feelings about that one. 3)they will likely need to start an IV. Some people are so afraid of needles but IV’s are a little different and can really be quick about getting you the help you need as soon as possible.

I am married to the love of my life who has recently retired from the Army. We are back “home” after being away for 21 years. We have 3 young boys and 1 daughter who is pursuing her college career. As a photographer, I specialize in the newborns and maternity portraits. I just love the amazing process of pregnancy and then having that sweet, new bundle of joy to love. Capturing all that is so important and I feel so blessed to be a part of this special time in my client’s lives.
