Lamaze: Get Upright and Follow Urges to Push (5 of 6)

Founded in 1960 by Elizabeth Bing and Marjorie Karmel, Lamaze International “affirms the normalcy of birth, acknowledges women’s inherent ability to birth their babies and promotes the Lamaze Healthy Birth Practices.” The position paper, Lamaze for the 21st Century, outlines the evidence-based rationale for the evolution of Lamaze preparation for birth.

The Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator promotes, supports and protects every woman’s right to give birth, confident in her own ability, free to find comfort in a wide variety of ways, and supported by her family and all members of the health care team.
