Childbirth education has been around for many, many years. When "Lamaze" is mentioned, most people think of the breathing techniques. However, breathing is no longer that hallmark of Lamaze Childbirth Education. Today, Lamaze educators are committed to helping women and their families have natural, healthy and safe birth they are looking for. Lamaze's philosophy is that women have an inherent ability to give birth. Lamaze not only support this ability, but instills women with the confidence they need to deliver their babies safely and with great personal satisfaction for the mother.
Lamaze, itself has expanded its concept from being just a method of childbirth to an entire philosophy.
The Lamaze philosophy:
Birth is normal, natural and healthy.
The experience of birth profoundly affects women and their families.
Women's inner wisdom guides them through birth.
Women's confidence and ability to give birth is either enhanced or diminished by the care provider and place of birth.
Taught by a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE), these 4 weekly Lamaze classes are designed to help give mothers the information they need to have a healthy and fulfilling childbirth experience.
