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 sets expectations long before that very first contraction, and allows you to determine your birth and post-delivery choices, including:
- Laboring aids
- Who will cut the umbilical cord
- Whether you want to bank your baby's cord blood
Complete your birth plan worksheet.Detail your 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.
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
