Love the visual birth plan. Pretty sure it will be responded to well during my labour! I decided to screenshot the icons I wanted and added to a document and added further notes on some icons.

Great help

These icons provide a very nice way to create a visual birth plan that's super quick and easy for care providers to understand. I think it could be improved by making the images easier to copy and paste into a word doc or other document creation software. Currently, you need to snip, paste, and re-size each icon you wish to use, which is not very user-friendly.
