Communicating Your Birth Plan
Childbirth is an experience unique to each woman and family, and we understand that you may have certain requests regarding the birth of your child at Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital. Discussing and creating a birth plan with your physician in advance will help us ensure that your wishes are considered.
Topics to discuss include:
- Administration of routine vaccinations
- Natural childbirth
- Option to bank your child’s cord blood
- Use of safe pain management medications (read about Labor Epidurals)
Please bring a copy of your birth plan with you for your delivery.
If you have any further questions, please call our Childbirth Education Line at (847) 535-6182 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
