Episode 13: Birth Plans and Preferences

 

In today’s episode we discuss birth plans and preferences. Did we have personal preferences going into our first birth experiences? Did they match up with how those births unfolded? Is there anything we would do differently the next time around?

Plus, we discuss when birth plans and preferences can be helpful and might they ever become detrimental?
