Sharp Mary Birch Birth Plan Document
Preparing for delivery, your way.
At Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, every expectant mother is special and her delivery journey should be special, too. Our caregivers, known countywide for their knowledge and expertise, pride themselves on supporting your personal birthing choices. It's one more way we put you at the forefront of your care.
Our birth plan worksheet (PDF) sets expectations long before that very first contraction. Are you skipping the epidural? Looking for laboring aids? Choosing a doula? And then there are post-delivery choices — like who will cut the umbilical cord and whether you want to bank your baby's cord blood. Detail all your labor and delivery wishes on your birth plan and bring it with you to the hospital.
Of course, every baby has their birth plan, too. So while we'll do everything to honor your preferences, some medical circumstances may impact your delivery. To get started, download your birth plan (PDF) and review it with your doctor.
