    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 :)

    These icons made creating my birth plan a breeze. They are a great tool for not only creating a birth plan, but for making you think through your options and creating informed choice. If an icon represents something you hadn’t thought of or heard of it urges you to find out more.
    I love how much shorter my birth plan appears with icons instead of Pages of instructions!
    They tie in nicely with the positive birth book which I would also recommend.

    Super helpful

    Posted by Hannah on 11th Aug 2019

    This took all the stress out of my birth plan, I stopped worrying about whether I'd remembered all the things I needed to include and just dragged and dropped all the relevant icons into my document.
