Rumor has it that Jennifer Lopez may be delivering her twins in Long Island, NY today. Considering how long it took her and husband Marc Anthony to announce their pregnancy, we may be in for a long wait as to confirmation for the validity of this rumor!

UPDATE!

Friday February 22 just after midnight Jennifer Lopez gave birth to her twins. Her baby  girl arrived first, weighing 5 pounds, 7 ounces.  Her baby boy arrived 15 minutes later weighing 6 pounds.  Now I can’t wait to find out the names she gave them!

Writing a Birth Plan

Just exactly is a birth plan?

A birth plan is a written plan that states your preferences for childbirth during labor and then following the delivery.

  • Do you wish to have a natural childbirth or use anesthesia and or pain medication?
  • How often would you like to monitored?
  • Who will cut the umbilical cord and when?
  • Do you wish to breastfeed immediately?
  • Do you want to keep the baby with you at all times?
  • Circumcision Preferences?
  • How much interference would like or not like from your doctor or nurse midwife?

There are so many things to think about. The birth of your child is one of the most important events in your life. Why not make a plan?
