This Ain't Your Ma's Lamaze
Lamaze is so much more than the breathing techniques we are known for. Lamaze promotes a natural, healthy and safe approach to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting practices. Knowing that pregnancy and childbirth can be demanding on a woman’s body and mind, Lamaze serves as a resource for information about what to expect and what choices are available during the childbearing years. This helps to simplify and clarify the childbirth process and alleviate fears. Most importantly, it helps women feel more informed and prepared so they can achieve safe and healthy pregnancies and births.
Birth is Normal
Childbirth education empowers women to make informed choices in health care, to take responsibility for their health, and to trust their innate ability to give birth.
The experience of birth profoundly affects women and their families. Women’s confidence and ability to give birth is either enhanced or diminished by the care provider and place of birth. Women have the right to give birth free from routine medical interventions. Birth can safely take place in homes, birth centers, and hospitals.
