Lamaze Philosophy

The mission of Lamaze International is to promote, support and protect natural, safe and healthy birth through education and advocacy through the dedicated efforts of professional childbirth educators, providers and parents.

The Lamaze philosophy of pregnancy:

  • Pregnancy is a normal, natural life event.
  • Women's bodies are perfectly designed to nourish and nurture their babies through pregnancy.
  • The months of pregnancy are necessary for babies to develop and grow, women's bodies to prepare for birth and for women to become mothers.
  • Pregnancy provides an opportunity for mothers and fathers to begin forming lifelong bonds with their babies.
  • A good support system, a healthy lifestyle and the ability to cope with the stresses of life, promote a healthy pregnancy, a healthy birth and a healthy baby.
  • The health care system and the care provider can increase or diminish women's confidence in the normalcy of pregnancy and in their ability to have a healthy baby.
  • Lamaze education empowers women to gain confidence in their bodies, to trust their inner wisdom and to make informed decisions about pregnancy, birth, breast feeding and parenting.
