Santiam Hospital strongly encourages you to educate yourself as much as possible before delivery, and to consider making a birth plan. Your actual labor and delivery may not go exactly as intended, but it is helpful to have an idea of what to expect, and a list of your desires for each aspect of labor and delivery. The more active your role in the planning stage, the more empowered you will feel during the birth.
