What Is A Birth Plan

As your pregnancy advances and your due date is approaching, have you thought about birth and labor? How would you like it to be? – Who would you like to be there, by your side, accompany and support you? – Which medical practices are you comfortable with and which you ‘d rather avoid? – How about the first moments with your new baby?

One thing is certain: a woman’s birthing experience can impact profoundly the future of her family. So, this is where a birth plan can be of value. There are as many different plans as women. But at the end of the day it all boils down to the same principle: choice.

A birth plan is essentially an outline of the mother’s preferences, a document designed to prepare her for the physical and emotional aspects of birth and labor. It helps expecting parents plan ahead for different scenarios and enables them to make decisions about each possibility. A birth plan is also a means of communicating with birth partners, caregivers, and hospital staff.

Drawing up your birth plan can be a stand-alone process, or a part of our prenatal meetings.

What Is A Postpartum Plan

As your due date is drawing closer, you may be thinking how your life will change. You may have heard how challenging the first days postpartum can be for new parents. Although there is merit to this, it need not be completely unpredictable and overwhelming. That’s why, it’s important to consider your preferences and options, and see how you can make the transition to parenthood as smooth as possible. It’s a good idea to consider drawing up a postpartum plan.

Some useful aspects you can think of and include in your plan are the following:

  • Sleep and rest
  • Newborn behaviour patterns
  • Parental leave options
  • Newborn feeding method
  • Meals
  • Household chores
  • Caring for older children and other responsibilities
  • Self-care, support and mental health

my specialty

Language assistance in the medical setting

Are you still in the process of learning to speak Greek? Is your healthcare provider uncomfortable explaining complex concepts in English? Do you find it stressful trying to communicate and not getting your message across, especially during a very sensitive period of your life, such as pregnancy and postpartum?

Then, you can rely on me to help you maneuver through your medical appointments, stress-free, worry-free and confidently.

As a certified professional linguist, I can accompany you to your medical consultation and help you communicate effortlessly with your doctor or midwife. With my discreet assistance, you can express your thoughts and feelings clearly, ask questions and get answers, so you can feel well-informed, understood and confident you can make informed decisions about every aspect of your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.

For the time being, I am offering medical interpreting services between English and Greek. I am also preparing some amazing future services in French, German and Spanish.
You can request medical interpreting as a standalone service, or as part of a doula service package.
