A birth plan session is an interactive way to learn about your options and decide what you prefer for you and your family during labour, birth, and on the baby’s first day.
While creating a birth plan together with a qualified doula, the pros and cons of different interventions will be explained. Further resources are shared so that you and your partner can have the evidence-based information you need to determine what your preferences are.
Doing this exercise will fill any gaps in your knowledge and provide the information necessary to navigate birth and the many decisions that come with it. Ensure everyone at your birth is on the same page with this customised, easy-to-read, comprehensive birth plan.

Many women today choose to have a doula present with them when they give birth. Here are some of the reasons why.
Having the right information about pregnancy and birth ensures you are empowered to make informed decisions for your pregnancy and birth. Prenatally, a doula will spend time with you to fill any gaps in your knowledge. They will ensure you have the information necessary to navigate birth and all the many decisions that come with.
Many times, all a woman needs during labour is to hear that what is happening is normal and that she is doing a great job. That can be enough to get the mother-to-be through the next contraction and on to a happy delivery.
All their attention is on helping you achieve an empowering experience. Anyone will perform better at a task with the right encouragement and support. Doulas are trained specifically in how to make you the most comfortable and how to help you have the most positive birth experience possible. Their focus will be entirely on you and helping any other birth partners support you effectively.
The evidence behind having a doula present during labour and birth supports all the following claims :
Delta Strength Doula was founded in 2016 by Yasmin AbuAyed in response to her desire to share the information she was learning during her pregnancy journey.
"My favorite moments as a birth doula and breastfeeding counsellor are when mothers recognise and embrace their own strength. I am passionate about birth rights for women and believe the more information a mother has and the more involved she can be in the decision-making around birth, the more positive her experience will be.
"I decided to become a doula because I have a strong desire to get knowledge to birthing people and help them learn the amazing capabilities they have, and experience the empowerment a birth can bring to their life. The culture we live in today puts such a fearful and painful image around labor I think it leads to many women missing the opportunity to really enjoy and be excited about their birthing day. As a doula, I now have the privileged role of the protector and steward of birth, bringing out the best possible experience for you and your baby.
"My goal is to ensure you are informed and feel empowered and confident throughout your experience."
