We proudly announce a new service at Sparks & Favor PC to help you sort through the overload of pregnancy and childbirth information. Whether you’re pregnant for the first time or just want a refresher, we are now offering Birth Planning 101 and 102.
What is Birth Planning 101 and 102?
Our program is designed to help you navigate the maze of choices about your pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Its focus is to provide you with the information you need to maintain a healthy pregnancy and help you prepare for a delivery that will be a cherished, family-centered memory. The program consists of:
- A one-on-one appointment with your physician’s RN early during your first trimester. We will give you an overview of your pregnancy care at Sparks & Favor, discuss recommendations for a healthy start to your pregnancy, and answer your questions. We will also suggest some topics that you will want to consider as your pregnancy progresses.
- A follow-up appointment later in your second trimester (usually at your 28-week appointment) will give you an opportunity to discuss your concerns in more detail and share your preferences with us. At this appointment, we will know a lot more about the progress of your pregnancy. We will be able to help you tailor your birth plan to your individual medical needs and wishes. What support persons—partner, another family member, or other individual–will share your childbirth experience? What comfort measures do you think you will choose? Do you plan to breastfeed (and more)? You do not need to have answers yet, but your thoughts will shape your eventual birth plan.
