Disappointed it was not disclosed that this was a single article I had to read during the course presentation. I expected a presentation, not to read something myself. Please let people know what to expect by accurately describing the course in the description. I would not have chosen to take this course had I known it was only a single article. I can access this material elsewhere and thought I was paying for an online course.

Description

Lamaze breathing historically is considered the hallmark of Lamaze preparation for childbirth. This column discusses breathing in the larger context of contemporary Lamaze. Controlled breathing enhances relaxation and decreases perception of pain. It is one of many comfort strategies taught in Lamaze classes. In restricted birthing environments, breathing may be the only nonpharmacological comfort strategy available to women. Conscious breathing and relaxation, especially in combination with a wide variety of comfort strategies, can help women avoid unnecessary medical intervention and have a safe, healthy birth.

Participants may earn 1.0 Lamaze Contact Hour.

Objectives

Trace the historical introduction of conscious breathing to the labor and birth process
Describe the physiological basis for conscious /mindful breathing
Identify one major advantage associated with focused breathing during labor
List multiple factors that have made conscious breathing relevant to laboring women today
