The mission of Lamaze International is to promote, support and protect normal birth through education and advocacy. Lamaze International believes that women who are fully informed, confident and supported will want normal birth. Over 40 years of research and learning from women’s experiences of normal, natural birth have provided evidence that has gradually but dramatically changed Lamaze from being a method for giving birth to a philosophy that provides the foundation and direction for women as they prepare to give birth and become mothers. The Lamaze philosophy of birth is at the heart of Lamaze education and has been for nearly a decade the driving force for significant changes in Lamaze preparation for childbirth. Today’s Lamaze affirms the normalcy of birth, acknowledges women’s inherent ability to birth their babies, and explores all the ways that women find strength and comfort during labor and birth. These evidence-based practices adapted from the World Health Organization promote, protect and support normal birth: • Labor begins on its own • Freedom of movement throughout labor • Continuous labor support • No routine interventions • Non-supine (e.g. upright or side-lying) positions for birth • No separation of mother and baby after birth As the official magazines of Lamaze International, Lamaze Pregnancy, Lamaze Parents and Lamaze Para Padres offer advertisers the most credible and trusted environment in which to showcase their products and services. Lamaze experts write and review the contents of these magazines to ensure they are evidence-based and consistent with the Lamaze philosophy of birth and parenting. OVERVIEW A comprehensive guide to life with a new baby For new parents, the real learning about their newborn begins immediately after birth and with the help of Baby Steps, the only postnatal magazine that nurses urge parents to read in their hospital room before heading home to the hectic demands of new parenthood. Baby Steps is a comprehensive guide to all things new parents need to understand about eating, sleeping, well-child checkups and more.
