Plan A: "I am intending to give birth under my own power, and will do all I can to achieve the best outcomes for myself and my baby."
Plan B: "If a medical intervention is recommended in order to achieve the best outcomes for myself and my baby, I need to be given the following information in order to make an informed decision:
- what do you want to do? (procedure, test, intervention, ...]
- why do you want to do that?
- what is likely to happen if I say 'no' - if I don't allow you to do it?"
