Why call it a birth plan?
Birth Plan is not really a Plan.
The best way to look at it, is it’s more about your choices, as there are so many to think about in birth, you don’t want to be trying to remember them all during the experience.
The birth plan should include all choices including when things don’t go to plan what your preferred methods are.
It also makes life a lot easier for both birth partners and medical team if they know ahead of time what you would prefer to happen and if you change your mind that’s ok too, the plan doesn’t need to go to plan,
Let’s call it birth preferences!
