The Maternity team at the American Hospital of Paris is committed to delivering respectful care, which includes respect for the patient’s autonomy. This requires giving the patient thorough, honest and intelligible information, and providing explanations before, during and after all medical procedures and care.
By talking with the medical team, writing a birth plan and being involved in relevant decisions, you and your partner will be better prepared for the birth of your child.
Whatever your wishes are regarding the birth, be sure to share them with our team during your prenatal visits. We are committed to providing you with all of the medical information you need to meaningfully participate in decisions, such as whether to have a natural childbirth, induce labor for medical reasons, schedule a cesarean section or request an elective cesarean section. By discussing your birth plan with you, we can respect your wishes while ensuring the safety of you and your child.
