Birth plan conversation
A good birth
A good delivery is more than a safe delivery, a healthy mother and a healthy child. A good birth is a birth that you look back on well. A birth where you feel seen and heard, where there was room for a personal interpretation and where choices were made that matched what you thought was important. A good birth gives you self-confidence, makes you proud and happy and remains etched in your memory long afterwards.
Marlies Rijnders, professor of obstetrics, published a study on satisfaction with childbirth among women. How much pain the woman was in was only a very small part of how satisfied a person was. Much more important were good preparation, realistic expectations, pleasant support and control.
To support the preparation for childbirth, we have put together a birthing course for you (see here) and we have made time available for this birth plan conversation. We will talk about your wishes based on a birth plan. You can use pictograms to express your wishes or write a birth plan.
