What patients and caregivers need to know about Obstetrics, Gynaecology and IVF

Lamaze Classes

Freya Hospital conducts Lamaze classes for all its patients. The goal of these classes is to make the would- be mothers ready for labor and to replace any negative preconceptions about pregnancy and the birth process that they have in their minds, with positive feelings.

Along with an overview of the anatomical, physiological, and emotional changes that are part of pregnancy, the participants and their Lamaze partners are taught relaxation techniques and breathing patterns. These techniques when practiced help ease the discomfort of labor and birth. Lamaze breastfeeding classes clears the common misconceptions surrounding breastfeeding too. The classes also give insights into the process of fetal growth and its final transition into a fully mature baby.
