26 Birth Plan




Description

This article is from the Birth Planning FAQ, by wnymph@FensEnde.com (Sabrina Cuddy) with numerous contributions by others.

26 Birth Plan


The instructor for the birth class that my husband and I attended gave
us a list of "informed consent questions." This was a list of 7
questions that we were supposed to ask the midwife or doctor when
changes to our birthplan were suggested. The birth class instructor
strongly recommended that everyone take the list to the labor/delivery
room since it is hard to keep a clear head and remember the questions
when you are in the middle of labor.

Informed Consent Questions:
1. Is this an emergency or do we have time to talk?
2. What would be the benefits of doing this?
3. What would be the risks of doing this?
4. If we do this, what other procedures or treatments might
we end up needing as a result?
5. What else could we try first or instead?
6. What would happen if we waited an hour or two before doing it?
7. What would happen if we didn't do it at all?
