Still preparing for your new baby or have questions before your visit?

To learn more about what to expect during your time with us, check out some of our frequently asked questions to help you prepare for your childbirth at Centra Virginia Baptist Hospital. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Make sure to develop your birth plan as you prepare for childbirth, as well! 

A Birth Plan can be a helpful tool to think about and get more information about how you want to be cared for during your labor and birth, learn the process of labor and what to expect, and communicate with your midwife or physician and your nursing team. Some people find it helpful to write down your preferences and plan before labor, and others prefer to tell your care team after labor begins. It’s important to remember that labor is unpredictable. You may need to make different choices as labor changes and unfolds. These discussions are with your midwife or physician and nurse during labor so that you can continue to make informed decisions in your care. Communicating preferences and talking about labor with your midwife or physician before labor begins is important to decrease fear and anxiety during labor and birth. We recommend people use this tool in the third trimester (or sooner!) and take it to your prenatal appointments for ongoing discussion and planning for care.
