Health Tip: Getting Ready for Childbirth

Health Tip: Getting Ready for Childbirth


(HealthDay News) -- Creating a birth plan means making a list of your preferences for labor and delivery.

The American Academy of Pediatricians says birth-planning should include your preferences about:

  • Whether someone calls the doctor's office when you go into labor, or do you simply head for the hospital?
  • Transportation to the hospital.
  • Where you'll deliver, who will be present and who you would like to deliver your baby.
  • Your preferences for position during labor, and pain management options.
  • Your preferences if unexpected circumstances arise, including the possibility of cesarean section.
  • In the event that you deliver early, does the facility have the resources to care for a premature baby?
