Birthing Preference Plans

 

Birthing preference plans…your way. It’s about a healthy baby…and a healthy YOU!

 
Here at Bethany Physical Therapy, we understand that it is more than just having a healthy baby with your delivery. You want a good experience and a plan that will focus on your body during pregnancy, delivery, and beyond. We want to help you get your body back. Birthing preference plans are designed by our pelvic floor physical therapist. She is one of the 150 Nationally Certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioners and will give you a detailed preference plan that your Doula, Midwife, and Ob/gyn can utilize to give you the most successful and positive delivery experience.
