During your pregnancy, your healthcare provider will discuss the pain relief options available to you during labor, delivery and cesarean section (if required). Anesthesiologists are in-house 24 hours a day and will take a full medical history in order to be aware of any current medications or allergies, in the event of an emergency cesarean section.
Completing a birth plan in advance of delivery helps to assure that the birth of your baby goes according to your wishes. It lets our team know of any special circumstances or requests that would be important during your labor and delivery process. Of course, sometimes changes need to be made for your baby’s health and for your own safety and comfort as labor progresses, but we do our best to make your birth experience everything you and your family are hoping for.
Use a birth plan form to help you organize your preferences, and then share with us.
