Hello Ladies! Please tell me what to expect during Lamaze. Ive been reading and researching like crazy but I need human input! thanks!

lamaze is centered towards natural chilbirth rather than medical interventions. the focus is more on the mother and the birthing process.

Hi Jane, you already know this but I thought I would post so that the other ladies have info too:

Principles of Lamaze:

* Birth is normal, natural and healthy
* The experience of birth profoundly effects 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
* Women have the right to give birth free from routine medical interventions
* Birth can safely take place in birth centers and homes
* Childbirth education empowers women to make informed choices in health care, to assume responsibility for their health and to trust their inner wisdom

Thanks Joy, Lorraine!

And here when I started I thought it was just about breathing!

I appreciate it girls!

haha! i guess its more of a "birthing way" than just breathing and coaching...

ive been reading about this even though i am expected to delivery my babies via c-section. it's very enlightening and it gives childbirth a whole new perspective other than the painful but rewarding experience it is
