This is a question many first time parents ask. There are different options depending on where you are giving birth -- virtual, group or private tour.
Knowing how to spot good maternity care is the key to getting it, which is why Lamaze International is presenting a complimentary webcast next Wednesday, called "Getting the Most Out of Your Hospital Tour."

Common sense tells us and research confirms that the Six Lamaze Healthy Birth Practices featured in these video clips and print materials are tried-and-true ways to make birth as safe and healthy as possible.
May 13 is Mother's Day and to celebrate, Giving Birth with Confidence will post throughout the month of May on The Wonder of Mothers, a series dedicated to sharing some of the many ways mothers' bodies are beautifully designed to grow, birth, and nourish her baby.
