Prepare for Your Hospital Stay
Write a birth plan
A birth plan is a listing of the choices and preferences you and your partner have about labor, birth and your hospital stay.
Give a copy of your birth plan to your doctor or midwife and bring a copy to the hospital. The staff will work to follow your plan. However it's important to remember that your safety and your baby’s safety is their priority. Depending on the course of your labor, some of your requests may not be possible.
Print out a birth plan and fill in your preferences.
What to bring to the hospital
To help you prepare for your trip to the Maternity Care Center, we've put together a checklist of items to bring to the hospital.
When you come to Woodwinds for the birth
When the time comes for you to go to the hospital, please use the Emergency Care Center entrance and a member of the Woodwinds staff will escort you to your room in the Maternity Care Center.
