What are lamaze classes?
Lamaze is a non-profit organisation that promotes a natural, healthy and the safe approach to a woman’s pregnancy, labour and early parenting. The classes will help guide you through the stages of labour and the choices that you may need to make at the time.
The lamaze organisation works closely with professionals, families and health care providers, so that each family receives helpful and correct guidance.
Lamaze believes that childbirth can take place at home, a birth centre or a hospital. They should not try to strongly influence your decision, but will explain the options available to you.
