Lamaze International promotes a natural, safe and healthy 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, alleviate a woman’s fears and, most importantly, helps a woman feel more informed and prepared so she can achieve a safe and healthy pregnancy and birth.
Lamaze education and practices are based on the best, most current medical evidence available, and can help reduce the overuse of unnecessary interventions while improving overall outcomes for mothers and babies. Working closely with their families, health care providers and Lamaze educators, millions of pregnant women have achieved their desired childbirth outcomes using Lamaze practices.
