Birth plans

We've been doing some online work into what women think about birth plans - writing them, and using them in labour and birth.

Many thanks to all those who took part in this study, we heard some interesting views and experiences.

We've produced a poster about why we were interested in birth plans and what women told us

Making birth plans

We posted a number of questions about birth plans over at Mumsnet and Netmums, exploring whether women think birth plans are useful and what experiences they'd had of writing and using them.

We heard a wide range of opinions and experiences, which you can learn about by accessing the poster. Next, we're talking to midwives to find out what they think about birth plans.
