6 Ways to Adapt Your Birth Plan During the Pandemic

Developing a birth plan is important for pregnant women to share their concerns, fears and get information about labor, birth and postpartum procedures. 

Here are 6 ways you can adapt your birth plan during the pandemic:

  • Are patients allowed birth partners?
  • Who can visit?
  • What happens if you test positive for COVID-19?
  • What happens if my baby and I get complications?
