About

Join us for an interactive session led by a Lamaze educator. Bring your spouse or birth partner to learn steps you can take for a safe and healthy birth, and gain labor pain management and coping skills! With all of the experiences that pregnancy brings, labor is likely the one that makes you the most nervous, and the one that you have the most questions about. Your body is perfectly designed for this, so join us to learn more!

From this short session our goal is to help you:

  • Find resources to help prepare you for labor and birth
  • Understand that being educated about labor will give you the information and tools needed to give birth with confidence
  • Understand how the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth Practices help support a safe and healthy birth 
    1. Let labor begin on its own
    2. Walk, move around and change positions throughout labor
    3. Bring a loved one, friend, or doula for continuous support
    4. Avoid interventions that are not medically necessary
    5. Avoid giving birth on your back, and follow your body’s urges to push
    6. Keep your baby with you—it’s best for you, your baby, and breastfeeding
