This birth plan is intended to express the preference and desires we have for the birth of our baby. We fully realize that situations may arise such that our plan cannot and should not be followed. However, we hope that barring any extenuating circumstances, you will be able to keep us informed and aware of our options.
Thank you.


Pain Relief : Spinal/epidural anesthesia

I would like to have my husband, Jonathon Thompson present in the O.R. For the Delivery of our baby.

I would prefer that the time that I am in a recovery room, that only nurses and my husband, Jonathon Thompson are present.

1st choice(similac advance)
2nd choice (enfamil)

Meeting the baby:

We would prefer that Abby meets the new baby before the rest of the family. We are also asking that if Abby is in the room, please remember this is a very exciting day for all of us, especially her - she is going to be a big sister! We welcome you to come and visit us...short visits will probably be better. Childbirth is an exausting event.We, Jon and I might enjoy a nap or two. Please remember that newborns are born with the mothers immune system, however it is very important to not expose extra germs to such a tender new baby. Please when you come in to visit us, wash your hands with warm water and soap. thank you.
