Was just reading about the BRAIN method of asking questions in labor at Crunchy Mom...she wrote:
if she wants to ask her doctor about the procedures discussed by using the B.R.A.I.N. acronym. That empowers her to ask about the benefits, risks, and alternatives to any procedure. Then we talk about what her intuition is telling her and ask if the intervention has to be done now. Then she has the power to make an informed consent.I hadn't used the acronym before when suggesting these questions, but I will now!
