The Lamaze International Award program was on hiatus from 2010-2014 and was revitalized in 2015. We look forward to the President Award list growing in the future as we continue to recognize those LCCE members who have demonstrated dedication to the principles of Lamaze International and made significant contributions in the field of childbirth education.
