Hi everybody! I'm Melanie Raposo and welcome to Mommy's Minute. For years lamaze has been associated with a particular type of breathing during labor. What many pregnant women don't realize is that there is much more this birthing option than just lamaze breathing. Lamaze strives to help women feel confident in their natural ability to give birth and to become active participants in the birthing process. Lamaze does not make labor less painful, but through the lamaze techniques you are able to understand and work with the pain. The lamaze philosophy discourages against medical intervention in less medically necessary. Through lamaze classes you'll learn about the use of drugs during labor and how they can affect your body. From then you can go on to make in an informed choice. To find the lamaze class near you, visit thepregnancyshow.com and follow the links.
