Birth Plan Form

This birth plan form can be saved to your computer and can be updated as needed. When drafting your birth plan, keep the following things in mind:

  • Your hospital or birthing center may not be able to accommodate every request. It’s a good idea to check in advance whether your plans can be accommodated.
  • Don’t be surprised if your wishes change once you are in labor. It’s OK to change your mind.
  • Discuss your birth plan well in advance of your due date with your health care provider.
  • Keep in mind that changes to your plan may need to be made based on unexpected events that arise or how your labor is progressing. It is best to be prepared for alterations in your plan as circumstances dictate.
