*Notice pertinent information first. If you have allergies or complications related to your pregnancy they should be listed at the top.

Most of your concerns should be addressed in the weeks prior to delivery. As you initiate discussions with your provider you should have a good idea of what to add or subtract from your birth plan. The shorter your birth plan is, the more your birth team will work to accomodate the items listed.
