How to be a supportive birth partner #8

#8 Support her choices. 
It is important that your partner feels supported in her choices. It may be beneficial to discuss her choices and agree on few prior to going in to labour. Some women choose to write a birth plan, others prefer to write down just a few preferences.  If you have strong believes or preferences around certain approaches or procedures, it may be worthwhile discussing these and write them down for future reference.  Only if you are aware of her preferences and know what they are about you can support her in them.
