with Carrie Parker Gastelu
Lamaze childbirth education promotes a natural, healthy and safe approach to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting. Lamaze education and practices are based on the best, most current medical evidence available. They can help reduce the use of unnecessary interventions and improve overall outcomes for mothers and babies. This workshop will help prepare you for labor, childbirth and early motherhood by learning how to trust your body, the energy of the birth process and your instincts as a mother.
This workshop covers:
- The Lamaze Approach to Birth: Birth is normal, natural and healthy.
•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 care provider and place of birth.
•Women have the right to give birth free from routine medical interventions.
•Birth can safely take place in homes, birth centers and hospitals.
•Childbirth education empowers women to make informed choices in health care, to assume responsibility for their health and to trust their inner wisdom.
- The Lamaze Healthy Birth Practices: These evidence-based practices, adapted from the World Health Organization, promote, protect and support natural, safe and healthy birth and include:
•Let Labor Begin on Its Own
•Walk, Move Around, and Change Positions Throughout Labor
•Bring a Loved One, Friend, or Doula for Continuous Support
•Avoid Interventions That Are Not Medically Necessary
•Avoid Giving Birth on Your Back, and Follow Your Body’s Urges to Push
•Keep Mother and Baby Together – It’s Best for Mother, Baby, and Breastfeeding
