The six Lamaze Healthy Birth Practices below are supported by research studies that examine the benefits and risks of maternity care practices. Therefore, they represent "evidence-based care," which is the gold standard for maternity care worldwide. Evidence-based care means "using the best research about the effects of specific procedures, drugs, tests, and treatments, to help guide decision-making."
