    Posted by Trisha Thompson on 17th Jun 2018

    These were such a great asset to my birth plan - my slightly stressed partner, midwives and doctors were all on and importantly REMAINED on the same page as to my desires whilst I was otherwise occupied! Cannot recommend these enough - THANK YOU!

    It helped me to think in pictures rather than words when going through these decisions.

    Posted by Rebecca Goodyear on 30th May 2018

    Used this set of graphics to create my birth plan- very easy to present your wishes for your birth in a format that midwives can view at a glance.

    The easiest and best

    Posted by Unknown on 29th May 2018

    Having read Milli's book and searched the internet for easy-to-use visual birth plan tools, I settled on her recommended visual birth plan tool from the Pinter and Martin website. Now, I've resisted putting together a birth plan for 8 months, but using this tool, I was able to draw up 2 birth plans in less than an hour. And I've had compliments from midwives, who want to use the same tool in their antenatal classes! Highly recommended.
