    Fundamentals for Pregnancy

    • Pregnancy is a normal, natural life event.
    • Women’s bodies are designed to nourish and nurture their babies through pregnancy.
    • The months of pregnancy are necessary for babies to develop and grow, for women’s bodies to prepare for birth and breastfeeding, and for women to become mothers.
    • Pregnancy provides an opportunity for mothers and fathers to begin forming lifelong bonds with their babies.
    • A good support system, a healthy lifestyle and the ability to cope with the stresses of life promote a healthy pregnancy, a healthy birth and a healthy baby.
    • The health-care system and care provider can increase or decrease a woman’s confidence in the normality of pregnancy and in her ability to have a healthy baby.
    • Lamaze education helps women to gain confidence in their bodies, to trust their innate ability to give birth and to make informed decisions about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting.
