A birth mother should write out a birth plan to enable her to fully communicate her wishes for her labor and delivery. It is a good idea that she speak with her doctor to examine the options that are open to her beforehand, and she should also read about the options that are available to her. She may have a very simple plan or a very detailed plan of what she wants to happen in the hospital. The birth mother should review her plan with her physician and provide copies for him, her labor and delivery nurse, and her labor coach. If the mother has chosen adoption, her birth plan should give instructions on if, and when, she would like the adoptive parents participate.
