Why should I take
A childbirth class?
Benefits of an out-of-hospital class at the AV Birth Center…
Childbirth instructors who do not teach at a hospital are not restricted by hospital policy in regards to what they teach. Which means you get a more informative class and are presented with more options that you may have expected.
Lamaze practices are based on the best medical evidence available, and are designed to promote a safe and healthy pregnancy and birth.
Improve Childbirth Understanding
The best start for mothers and babies is a safe and healthy pregnancy and birth, based on current evidence. Lamaze can help you achieve this – and help you feel confident about giving birth – by serving as a resource for information about what to expect and the best options available during the childbirth process.
Childbirth can be demanding on your body and mind, but Lamaze can help simplify the process with a natural approach. It can alleviate your fears and help you manage pain – all with the goal of a safe and healthy birth, based on current evidence.
Work as a Team
You, your family, your provider and your Lamaze educator each have an important role in the process of pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting. All of you are a community that works together to help you and your baby achieve a safe and healthy outcome.
Use a Proven Approach
Millions of pregnant women have taken Lamaze classes over the years. Lamaze is based on principles that are just as relevant today as they always have been.
