    Loved it

    It honestly helped us create our birth plan, when we were completely lost before. It's simple and easy to understand.

    This is such a brilliant way to communicate your birth plan. Me and my husband really enjoyed printing off the symbols and discussing our options while cutting and sticking them down. Much better than writing it down like a letter.

    The only thing I can think of is that with my previous birth, I wrote on there that both me and the baby should be on the organ donor register.

    I downloaded these on advice from a friend and they were really useful in writing a clear birth plan, and they're free!

    Visual Birth Plan

    Posted by Kristina on 4th Oct 2019

    I love this product. It was a great way how to easy and quickly communicate my plan not only with my midwife but with all the staff included during my birth experience. Everyone was commenting on it in the delivery suite :)
