Remember that a birth plan is a wish list

Your baby's birth should be a joyful experience. One way that you can make your wishes for this time known is to fill out a birth plan and have with you when you go to the hospital. There are many things to include in this plan, but you must remember that this is just a list of guidelines and suggestions. You shouldn't think of your birth plan as something that is set in stone.

As you are creating the birth plan, remember that the ultimate goal is to for you and your baby to be in good health when you leave the hospital. There are times when reaching that goal means that you will have to leave the wish list behind and move forward with necessary actions to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.

While many factors will determine what is appropriate in your case, the primary one is your pregnancy status. Most women will have a perfectly normal pregnancy. However, those who have a high-risk pregnancy won't have as many options. Discussing your wishes with your doctor ahead of time can give you an idea of what might be possible and what won't be.

There are some instances in which things can go horribly wrong during labor and delivery. When this could have been prevented through proper care by the medical staff, you might have the ability to seek compensation for the damages. This won't take away the impacts of the situation, but it might provide you with the financial help to get your baby the care they need.
