The Lamaze birthing technique is probably the most common child birthing technique that is taught by hospitals and child birth educators. This birthing technique was created by Dr Fernand Lamaze in the 1940′s to help women cope with the pain of childbirth. He felt that women were capable of giving birth without the need of medical intervention. The goal of his techniques was to empower women and teach them how to cope with child birth pain.
