(with Michele Deck, mama of 3, past president of Lamaze International) I want to be ready for my baby. But will birth classes really prepare me for birth, because I’ve heard from a bunch of women they didn’t help?
What will a Lamaze birth class teach that’ll help during labor & birth? Does Lamaze just teach about breathing?
Michele Deck has answers to help you make decisions on your birth classes. She’s the past President of Lamaze International, a labor & delivery nurse, a Lamaze certified childbirth educator & is a mom of 3.
She shares the 3 most helpful results a birth class will help you receive, how Lamaze teaches moms to make decisions based on research & evidence, ways to cope with labor pain & how childbirth classes help you be more relaxed, which can help you have a faster & easier labor.
Michele explains why it’s important to get accurate pregnancy & childbirth info from evidence based practitioners (as opposed to random online chat rooms). She also explains what exactly Lamaze is & how it’s different from other childbirth classes.
She shares about her first 2 births & why being “emotionally connected” in the 2nd was such a different experience.
