Birth Wishes (Birthing Plan)
Welcome to our birthing suite, where families begin. With this wish list we hope to help you make informed decisions for a joyful labor and birth experience.
Please follow the link below for a printable copy of SMHC's Birth Wishes list. We recommend that you read read through the options and discuss your wishes with your support person. Your physician can help you make more informed decisions. The knowledge you gain from reading, childbirth classes or discussion with others can help with informed choices and wishes. Feel free to add any information you feel would aid the staff here at Southern Maine Medical Center to assist you in your labor and birth process. Many of the choices put forth in this handout are routine at SMMC. Please know that your birth wishes should be flexible, and that changes can be made during your stay with us.
