Help Lamaze Promote Natural, Safe and Healthy Birth!
Lamaze International has been instrumental in bringing the message of natural, safe and healthy birth to women and families around the world. Your donation allows us to continue and grow the delivery of that message through the work of our passionate childbirth educators, evidence-based information and research and direct outreach to women.
With your support, Lamaze International is able to reach consumers, members of the media, and health care professionals with a contemporary approach to pregnancy and childbirth that allows women to have the safe and healthy experiences they want for themselves and their babies.
With your support, we promote the evidence-based Six Healthy Birth Practices to pregnant women and the individuals that support them. We hope these six healthy birth practices increase awareness and decrease the alarmingly high maternal mortality rate in the United States.
With your support, we inform health care professionals about the substantial and long-standing body of evidence that is the basis of Lamaze education.
With your support, Lamaze International makes a difference!
