Stated "First U.S. Edition: August 2001." Fine DJ. "'In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children,' commands the Bible, and for centuries childbirth pain was judged woman's inescapable burden. Then in the 1950s arrived a revolutionary new technique for dealing with it, named for its inventor and tireless promoter, a French doctor named Fernand Lamaze. Lamaze proposed a simple yet radical way by which women could not only ease their labor but also take control over it. The rest is obstetrical history. / Caroline Gutmann lives with her son and husband in Paris, where she is publicity director of the publishing house Fayard." - Publisher.
