The Importance Of A Birth Plan

The most important birth plan is the discussion that a patient has with her doctor prior when going to give birth. Dr. Alberto Sirven, Medical Director of the West Kendall OB/GYN Program and Women and Infant Credentials Committee Chairman with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, advises consulting with a specialist before going into a labor. According to Dr. Sirven, a good birth plan includes: the people who are with the new mom during the labor time, how many members of her family she wants with her, type of pain management she wants to have or to have a vaginal delivery or cesarean section.
