Building a birth plan is something every mom-to-be should do. Sure, who knows what will actually happen! However, having a plan helps soothe anxieties and prepare you and your partner for what you both want most to happen during the birth of your baby.
It’s so exciting, expecting a new baby. Maybe when you think of your birth plan, you get overwhelmed and have no idea what you would like best to happen during the labor and delivery of your baby. This article will be an overview of some of the options to think about and decide upon.
Here is a list of the many things to think about that you would like to happen, if everything goes smoothly. It is likely there will be a hiccup and you will have to make some last minute changes. But that’s okay, you’re prepared.
We will break down each category with all the questions and options to consider. I’m excited to help you figure out the perfect birth plan for you and your new baby.
Parents.com has great resources for building a birth plan. Ginny Graves writes “Of course you understand that all plans and preferences may go completely out the window once things are really under way. But still, thinking about your birth, discussing it with your partner and OB-GYN or midwife, and writing a few things down in advance will ease your anxiety level and help you address your biggest concerns.”
In the end, you will have this beautiful new baby and you will forget all about these many decisions and anxieties. Once you have your sweet baby in your arms, all your hard work and preparation will be more than worth it. Your new love is waiting to be in your loving arms.

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.
