Birth Preferences Worksheet

The following is a series of questions for you to document what your birth preferences are. Keep in mind that we cannot plan how a birth is going to go, but thinking ahead about how you might respond in some situations can be very helpful. You can choose whether or not you share this with the rest of your birth team. The important aspect is thinking through these topics together! 

Some questions may be more relevant to hospital births, and some may be more relevant to out of hospital births. Please feel free to skip questions that do not apply to you. Except for the Unexpected Circumstances section- you must do it!!

I will email a completed document after submission.
