Ok, So you have downloaded the template, watched the how to guide, and now you are keen to spend some one on one time really editing, defining and refining your birth plan for maximum efficacy.
I can spend time with you in person or via skype/zoom and step by step guide you through the process, from brainstorming through to presenting and discussing with your care provider/s.
How does this work?
1. Initial meeting. (20-30 minutes) We will discuss your initial thoughts, ideas and feelings around birth. You will begin to brainstorm your needs using the template above and have time to ask quesitons about any areas you are unsure about. I can direct you to further resources to help in your exploration and recommend any areas that you might be helpful to look into a bit deeper. During this meeting we will set a time for you to have your first email sent to me.
2. Your first email. You will send me a copy of your birth plan brainstorming template and any extra information that I need to begin to put your birth plan together.
3. Second meeting (45-60 minutes). This is where we really nut out any areas that can be clarified and begin to create draft/s of your birth plan/s to present to your care provider/s. At the end of this meeting I will have the beginnings of a birth plan that I will be able to edit and clean up into document/s to present and refer to in labour. During this meeting we will also set a time for me to send the final draft of your birth plan back to you.
4. Using the drafts and any information you have given me I will edit and prepare final draft/s of your birth plan for you to keep and use. This will be emailed to you by the previously agreed date.
