Prenatal Planning Session

In our prenatal planning sessions, we guide you in streamlining your birth preference​s.  The one thing we know for sure about birth is that it is unpredictable, therefore nearly impossible to plan for.  We do believe, however, that with the right information you can have a satisfying birth experience regardless of which path your birth follows.  This session often takes place after you have taken a childbirth education class as a way to decode and personalize the information you have learned.


This session takes place with you and your partner or labor support person between 34-36 weeks of pregnancy.  If your birth was a journey, we help you map it out.  We explore what going into spontaneous labor would look like and how your partner can support you through each stage of both a medicated and unmedicated labor.  We then go over each possible induction method and all of the possible options that you have along the way.  In the event of cesarean birth, we make sure you have all the information you need so that there are few, if any, unexpected twists and turns along the way. 

You will leave this session with a personalized and succinct Birth Preference sheet that will leave you feeling prepared and ready to own your birth.

You can rest easy knowing that you are able to remain in control, equipped with all of the essential information for your birth.
