Birth Plan. Natural childbirth. Nursing. Family Health. Women's Health.


The natural childbirth consists of a delivery without unnecessary medical interventions, with the protagonism of the pregnant woman and the baby, without analgesics or substances to accelerate the contractions. Birth in our country is not a natural experience, according to the survey Born in Brazil, because 52% of births are by cesarean section. The birth plan is nothing more than a document, made by the pregnant woman, in the form of a letter or filling a pre-existing model, containing what she wants to happen or not during her delivery, leaving her wishes registered. The main objective of this work was to develop a bibliographical review on the theme "The importance of the realization of the Childbirth Plan", thus condensing information and ideas that have been published about it. This work consisted, then, in a Bibliographic Survey, with a qualitative approach. The bibliographic survey was done from the analysis in source both primary and secondary. It was concluded that the Birthing Plan, besides being a way of giving autonomy and empowerment to the pregnant woman, assists the health team that will attend it. Many are professionals who still disrespect what is recommended, and perform unnecessary procedures, even the birth plan being suggested by the WHO itself. The importance and need for studies and research on the delivery plan is highlighted, as unfortunately there is a shortage of national publications about it. There is a shortage also relating the theme as a tool used during nursing care, evidencing the need for more research on this subject.
