What Is The Philosophy Behind A Lamaze Birth?
Lamaze International believes: • Birth is normal. • The experience of birth profoundly affects 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 health care provider and place of birth. • Women have a 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.
