Birth Plans… For You or Them?

Do you care what others think of your birth plans?
Is it something that concerns you.
That you try to tip toe around with others, making excuses even regarding *your* birth and pregnancy?

I have been known as a people pleaser. But when it came to my fourth pregnancy, I decided *I wanted to birth my baby the way I felt best more than I wanted to please others.*
More than every doctor I talked to.
More than my friend I saw at the library.
More than acquaintances or best friends.

I had to do what my gut told me despite what other people said to me or thought about me. I didn’t share my heart with many because my energy was too precious to expend. I protected myself and my heart.

But ultimately, people will always have an opinion.

I surprised myself during pregnancy because I felt like in some ways, my people pleasing tendencies were being broken off. I had to do what was right for me. And I encourage you to do what is right for you.
