The Official Lamaze Guide: Giving Birth with Confidenceby Charlotte De Vries
Synopses & Reviews
The Official Lamaze Guide helps expectant parents experience childbirth with confidence. In clear, easy-to-understand terms, this book dispels the myths that pregnancy and birth are fraught with risk. Lothian and DeVries offer solidly researched evidence to document that common medical interventions (such as pitocin, epidural block, c-sections, IV fluids, and electronic fetal monitoring) often have the effect of putting both mother and baby at greater risk than an intervention-free or "normal" childbirth. In collaboration with Lamaze International, the authors bring decades of professional and personal experience backed by strong research support their views on preparing women for childbirth.

The Lamaze Guide helps expectant parents embrace natural childbirth with confidence. This book will be of value not only to those taking Lamaze classes who have already decided on natural childbirth, but to all expectant parents who want to make sure that their childbirth experience reflects their informed choices rather than the convenience of their physician. This book is the only official guide endorsed by Lamaze International, the leading organization in North America providing childbirth training for pregnant mothers.
