Developing a birth plan

Many couples wish to develop and share their plan for labour and birth with their maternity team. While staff at Mater Mother’s Private Redland would encourage you to consider your preferences for this special time, it is important to discuss these with your obstetrician prior to going into labour so that any details which might incur a risk to you or your baby can be fully discussed before labour begins.

Because labour and birth involve so many variables, it is not possible to predict exactly what will happen, and you should be reassured that Mater Mothers’ Private Redland team are committed to providing the best care which is safe for both you and your baby. Sometimes, in emergency situations this may mean your preferences may not be able to be followed exactly. Wherever possible we would endeavour to discuss the reasons for this with you to facilitate informed consent and your understanding of events.
