13Be Prepared for Anything
Go ahead and write your birth plan. Make plans for a vaginal home birth, free of drugs, or one with an epidural in a hospital. Whatever your ideal birth plan may be, plan for it. However, I highly suggest you do a little research on C-sections, too.
While a C-section may
be the furthest thing from your mind, the fact is that labor and delivery don’t always go according to plan. In fact, the process can be completely different than your plan. Although your plan may be a home birth, by doing the research, if you end up having a C-section, you won’t be completely shocked.
And, if everything does go according to your plan, at least you took the time to educate yourself for the “what if?” scenario.
