Low-Intervention Birth Plan

If you want an unmedicated, or natural birth experience, work with your Essentia maternity care provider to create a low-intervention birth plan. You can trust that your care team will respect your preferences, and follow your birth plan as closely as possible while keeping your and your baby's health our top priority. We will encourage you to move around throughout labor with only occasional monitoring.

Is Low-Intervention Right For Me?

Ask your Essentia maternity provider about a low-intervention birth plan if you:

  • Are carrying a single baby
  • Have a healthy pregnancy with no complications
  • Don’t have a chronic health condition
