Infant Massage
Research demonstrates many developmental benefits of positive physical contact for infants, including weight gain, calmer sleep cycles, increased production of melatonin, which aids in sleep, and decreases in cortisol, a stress indicator. Massaged infants also tend to socialize more easily, and mothers with depression who massage their babies have also experienced an increase in parent-child bonding.

Lamaze Childbirth Education Class 

The Lamaze method, developed by the French obstetrician Ferdinand Lamaze, has been used in the United States since the late '50s and remains one of the most commonly taught types of childbirth classes. In the early days, the focus was on using controlled breathing techniques to cope with labor. But the vision of Lamaze educators has expanded a lot since then.

 

According to Lamaze International, the goal of Lamaze classes is to "increase women's confidence in their ability to give birth." Toward that end, women learn a variety of simple coping strategies, of which breathing is only one. The classes aim to help women "learn how to respond to pain in ways that both facilitate labor and increase comfort."

 

The Lamaze philosophy of birth stipulates that "birth is normal, natural, and healthy" and that "women have a right to give birth free from routine medical interventions." But Lamaze also educates women so that when interventions are needed, or pain relief medication is desired, women are able to give true informed consent.
