What people are saying…
“Before I read Your Birth Plan my husband and I were both terrified of birth and now we are prepared, ready, and excited about it.” – Lauren
“I spent hours looking at sample birth plans online and was so frustrated I was ready to give up on writing my own plan. I found your book and it was exactly what I needed. Thank you! – Alexis
“I had a good idea of what I wanted in my plan but I couldn’t come up with the right wording and it was three pages long. Thanks to the template in the book I cut it down to one page, reviewed it with my doctor, and am 100% ready to have my baby.” – Emily
