Visual Birth Plan

Typewritten birth plans can easily get lost during labor. Between staff transitions and a typically long list of requests, many moms have a difficult time laboring and reminding numerous providers of their wishes.That’s where our kit comes in! You can visually and quickly express your wishes to your healthcare team by completing it at home and then packing it in your "go bag." It sticks to the wall, so everyone can see!

Each kit includes:

  • 20 decals representing the most common items addressed in a birth plan
  • 4 alert decals (such as Rh- or GBS+)
  • 10 “no thanks” decals that can overlay any of the other decals
  • an 11″ x 17″ planning board
  • a bag for your decals
  • a door hanger to alert staff you have a birth plan
  • a pocket calendar
  • a durable storage tube
  • removable wall adhesive

Our goal is to help moms easily and quickly share their desires for both themselves and their baby's care during labor, delivery and postpartum.
