In this episode, I talked about the routine and not-so-routine hospital procedures that women in labor go through until they deliver.
You may not realize how many actual decisions you have the ability to make when you enter the hospital doors in preparation for the delivery of your child. Everything you have done in the hospital is a choice for you whether you realize that or not.
I always preach that informed decisions are crucial in the healthcare field, so listen to the podcast to figure out how to design your birth plan.
Did you create a birth plan when you were pregnant?
Did you deny/refuse any of the routine procedures in the hospital?
I felt that my midwife and hospital were very in tune with the birth I envisioned, so I never felt like I needed to fight them on anything really.
