Birth Planning

We offer expecting moms a birth plan to decide what's right for you.

We Help Planning the Delivery of Your Baby

The day your baby is born is one you’ll always remember.

For many generations, ChristianaCare has helped mothers and their families deliver and nurture their babies. Our commitment to the highest level of care for infant feeding and mother-baby bonding has earned us a Baby-Friendly™ designation by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative—a global program of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Our Services

As part of our support, we offer expecting moms a birth plan, which helps you think through your care options, decide which are right for you and share them with the health care team.

Print the Birth Plan

  • Talk about your birth plan with your doctor (obstetrician).
  • Bring a copy with you when you come to the hospital to have your baby.
  • Share your plan with your labor nurse.
  • Labor Support Cards have been developed to support you during your labor. The cards provide you with simple tips for understanding your labor pain, positions, movements and breathing, vocalizing and relaxation to help you feel more comfortable during labor.
