How to write a birth plan

Some couples get stumped when trying to figure out how to write down their birth preferences or birth plan. They just don’t know where to start!

This is a great exercise for mom’s to picture what they ideally during labour. It is also helpful for their birth partners and OBs or midwives to look over during the latter stages of pregnancy and to review at their birth place.

Here is a great link to get mom’s started on their birth plans:

How to Write a Birth Plan that Actually Works

It’s from one of my favourite magazines, pathways to family wellness.

Here at Erin Mills Optimum Health, we have birth doulas who are also Naturopathic Doctors.

Dr. Tiffany Wyse is one of our Naturopathic Doulas. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience supporting mom’s and their partners.  Dr. Wyse is offering complimentary 15 minute consultations if you would like to meet her and learn how else she can help you!

The sunshine vitamin and C section risk.

We want all of our mama’s to have the best birth possible. The preferred way is vaginally as C-section is major abdominal surgery and the recovery tends to be much longer.
This is a very interesting study on  vitamin D status in a pregnant mother. It states: Vitamin D deficiency was linked to a 2-fold increased risk of cesarean for prolonged labour.
Therefore–if you are pregnant, it is essential that your vitamin D is checked. It is a simple blood test that your OB, midwife or Naturopathic doctor can do.
Call us today in Mississauga to inquire about what other vitamins  are essential for pregnancy.  We have plenty of information that can help you be your best throughout your pregnancy and into the birth.
