Did you know? Forming a birth plan does not necessarily mean that you have your delivery plans covered! Dr. Quek mentions in this video that a birth plan is more like a wish list – wanting pain relief or not? The birth plan is for you to inform the doctors & staff about your desire. But it is still important to discuss these plans with your doctors to ensure your own safety and baby’s safety. Sit back and enjoy this clip as Dr. Quek explains the difference between a birth plan and planning your delivery with your doctor.
