One of the things I regretted about my last birth experience, is that I didn’t have a birth plan. I knew I was going to have a c/s, and so I figured I didn’t need one. I never put any thought into what options I still had with a cesarean birth.
Since then, I have learned that whether a mom has a cesarean or vaginal birth, a birth plan can definitely be a great help. As many people will point out, a birth plan doesn’t *guarantee* anything. It doesn’t mean that everything will go as you had hoped and planned because nothing in life ever goes that way. Even so, a birth plan is a way of setting goals, and preparing for them which can definitely pay off.
