Things To Know:

  • Because this plan covers different medically assisted birth methods, specifics to particular birth methods will be noted.
  • This plan is appropriate for pregnancies about 19 weeks and under.  We also have a birth plan for weeks 20 to 30.

Helpful Tips:

  • Check out our listing of local professionals and volunteers willing to support you through the process
  • Consider special farewell words or music.
  • Also include a personalized farewell celebration.
  • Ask for your ultrasound photos, or visit a local Crisis Pregnancy Center that performs ultrasounds, and ask if you can have one last photo of your baby.
  • If your baby still has a heartbeat, consider using your cell phone or other recordable device, and record the doppler’s sounds of your baby’s heartbeat.  You can then add this to a Build-A-Bear as a momento.
  • More momento and special ideas are listed in the birth plan.
  • If after the birth, you experience pain, fever, bleeding that fills a pad sooner than an hour, clotting, or a foul odor, please see your care provider immediately.
  • Our birth education section has additional information that may prove useful to you.
  • Please visit our link on general postpartum health (your emotional and physical health after delivery).
