What You Can Do If Your Birth Doesn't Go To Plan


Childbirth is a wonderful, miraculous phenomenon. However, the sad fact is that it sometimes doesn’t go to plan. Whether a minor or major issue occurs as a result, here is what you can do to deal with it.

Firstly, the issue might be that you weren’t able to stick to your original birth plan. You may have wanted only gas and air, or have wanted to avoid having a c-section at all costs. If this is the case, the only thing you can do is accept it. What is important is that you got through the birth and that you and your baby are well. And that your birthing partner has been given a big glass of water and a sit-down! Know that many women are not able to stick to their birthing plan. While childbirth is very common, all sorts of different factors can get thrown up along the way. Your midwife's priority was to keep you both safe, and that comes above any ‘best scenario’ plan. Accept that what you wanted didn’t happen, and realise that what matters is that you are both healthy.


But what if your baby is not healthy? Tragically, Doctors, Nurses and Midwives do very occasionally make mistakes- just like the rest of us. Often, these as minor, and can go unnoticed. However, if the baby has been delivered negligently, it may have been born with Cerebral Palsy or another illness. If this is the case, a cerebral palsy lawyer will be able to research whether a medical professional was at fault. It could be that they didn’t monitor the baby’s heartbeat correctly, or deliver early enough. While you may not be looking for someone to blame, a success claim could mean a payout. A poorly baby is even more expensive to look after than a healthy one. From special health care equipment to hospital trips and special care, a payout could be just what you need to get by.

It could be that there is a minor issue with your or your baby that means you have to stay in the hospital longer than usual. This might be that you have to stay an extra night, or even a few nights. Again, while you will be glad the issue is only minor, you may be frustrated. You may have other children or responsibilities to get home too. Or you may just be so excited to introduce your new bundle to their new home and nursery! Whatever it is that you are being delayed from, avoid the panic by having prepared for it in advance. If it’s too late for that, relax. Stress is not what you need right now. Enlist the help of your friends and family, asking them to do what you can’t. There is no point panicking about getting home to feed your dog. Just have a good friend come and pick up the key and do it for you. At a time like this, your loved ones will rally around you. They’ll be happy to do whatever you ask them- as long as you ask them!
