Whether this is your first pregnancy or you’re a veteran to the delivery room, here are some terms you may hear from your doctor or nurse during your pregnancy.
The nursery’s painted, the closet’s full of onesies, and you’ve even explained the situation to the dog! Today’s expectant mothers don’t truly feel ready, though, until they’ve prepared a detailed birthing plan. But if birthing plans are so important, why should they be so…flexible?
The birth of your baby is one of the most joyous experiences you’ll have, so you’ll want to put some thought into the details of this life-changing event.
