Lamaze is so much more than the breathing techniques we are known for. Lamaze welcomes and respects all individuals and families on this journey from every corner of the world. Our goal is simple: we want all parents to feel confident, supported and powerful as they ask questions, make decisions, and navigate their path through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
Six decades of research and experience have taught us that birth is transformative and that every family deserves a safe and healthy birth experience. Our evidence-based Six Healthy Birth Practices are the basis of Lamaze education, which teaches about the safest and healthiest practices for a safe and healthy birth.
Lamaze Helps You Decide What’s Best for Both You and Your Baby
Working closely with their families, health care providers and Lamaze educators, millions of pregnant women have achieved their desired childbirth outcomes using Lamaze practices.
