    THE BEST Lamaze Handbook!!!!

    There are so many great things about this book! It is concise and to the point. Unlike other birthing books that spend hundreds of pages focusing on all the obscure complications that could occur during childbirth, 'Six Practical Lessons' discusses what happens during a more common healthy birth. This makes it easier to understand and more helpful. My husband and I had the privilege of taking Lamaze classes with Elisabeth Bing, and we found this book to be a great supplement for her classes. She is one of the pioneers of the Lamaze method here in the United States and a co-founder of Lamaze International. 'Six Practical Lessons' explains what exactly happens during labor, demonstrates exercises for you and your partner to prepare for labor, and goes over relaxation and breathing techniques. It also contains helpful illustrations and photographs. Also, by going over the history of Lamaze it helps explain and understand why this method works so well.
