The Lamaze Way

1. Birth is normal, natural, healthy, & safe.

2. Women have an innate ability to give birth.

3. The experience of birth profoundly affects women and their families.

4. Women's confidence & ability to give birth is enhanced or diminished by the care provider & place of birth.

5. Women have the right to give birth free from routine medical interventions.

6. Birth can safely take place in homes, birth centers and hospitals.

 

Testimonials

 

Ashley

"My husband and I took this class together. I had a lot of anxiety about labor and delivery before we took the class. I can say for sure that this class is the #1 reason I am going into my 3rd trimester and approaching labor and delivery with confidence."

Pregnant Woman in Brown

Will I learn how to have a natural birth?

I believe that every person has their own unique path. Instead of focusing on medicated vs. unmediated birth, I focus on giving you tools and helping you learn the evidence, so that you can decide what feels right for your family.
