New Update Workshop for Childbirth Educators

Jeanne and I, along with our colleague, Margie Wallis, premiered the first Lamaze International Reality Birth workshop for childbirth educators on May 15th in Dallas, Texas. Using the theme of reality TV shows such as Extreme Makeover, American Idol, and Dancing With the Stars, we presented the latest information on hot topics such as induction, cesareans, and addressing fear in childbirth classes. Emphasizing creative teaching strategies, we also discussed the amazing interplay of hormones during labor, birth, and breastfeeding and took a fresh look at teaching strategies to help women develop confidence for birth.
