serving families in Durham since 1979
We have been providing childbirth and baby classes to families in Durham since 1979. Our mission is to optimize your childbirth experience, avoid cesarean birth, and most of all, help promote bonding and attachment between you and your baby. Women and their support persons who attended Lamaze classes were found to have more satisfying birth experiences. Through increasing knowledge and practice, Lamaze helps reduce anxiety, develop skills in labour, and increase your and your partner's confidence in childbirth.
All of our prenatal educators have completed further education to become Certified Childbirth Educators, Postpartum Doulas, Labour Doulas, or Lactation Specialists. We bring a realm of knowledge and experience to ensure you receive exceptional standards of service. Our teaching is evidence-based, you are assured to receive the most updated guidelines from reputable sources. Our goal is to offer unbiased information to all families to help them explore their options so that they will be able to make an informed decision for their unique experience in childbirth. We offer prenatal classes on labour and delivery, baby care, and breastfeeding. We hope you will join our big family and grow with us.
