Birth is a physiological process and understanding how the process works means you can choose to respond in ways that tend to help rather than hinder it. Lamaze gives you the understanding as well as the skills you both need to approach labour and birth with knowledge and confidence.
Sessions focus on how to stay as relaxed as possible during labour using breathing patterns, relaxation techniques, movement and massage – all of which help women to cope and increase the likelihood of a normal birth. Birth partners learn skills that enable them to offer knowledgeable, timely support that adapts as a woman’s needs in labour unfold.
Lamaze antenatal sessions offer support based soundly on latest evidence and research empowering women to consider all their options and to make informed choices about their care – choices that are right for them and their families.
