Intensive Prenatal Preparation For Childbirth
The Institute of Medicine says it takes on average 17 YEARS for medical professionals to change the way they practice. Don't get stuck with outdated practices for your baby's birthday! With our private prenatal lesson or "intensive" ONE DAY childbirth class, you'll learn how to get evidence based care to optimize your birth outcome.
In 1951, Dr. Fernand Lamaze introduced a method of childbirth in France by incorporating techniques he observed in Russia. Learning from years of research and observing women’s experience of normal, natural birth, Lamaze International was established in 1960. Today, Lamaze is a not-for-profit organization composed of parents, childbirth educators, and healthcare practitioners whose mission is to advance safe and healthy pregnancy, birth and early parenting through evidence-based education and advocacy. The 2001 position paper, Lamaze for the 21st Century, outlined the evidence-based rationale for the evolution of Lamaze preparation for birth.
