Maria's classes are based on the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth practices:

  • Healthy Birth Practice 1: Let labor begin on its own  
  • Healthy Birth Practice 2: Walk, move around and change positions throughout labor
  • Healthy Birth Practice 3: Bring a loved one, friend or doula for continuous support
  • Healthy Birth Practice 4: Avoid interventions that are not medically necessary
  • Healthy Birth Practice 5: Avoid giving birth on your back and follow your body's urges to push
  • Healthy Birth Practice 6: Keep mother and baby together - It's best for mother, baby and breastfeeding

The video below from Lamaze International is an introduction to these practices.
