Lamaze Childbirth among the Amish People
Document Type: Standard Article
Affiliations: ELISABETH BING is a physiotherapist, a childbirth educator, and cofounder of the American Society for Psychoprophylaxis in Obstetrics (now, Lamaze International). Her book, Six Practical Lessons for an Easier Childbirth (1967), guided many parents and childbirth educators in the use of the Lamaze Method for labor and birth. She has prepared a multitude of parents for their birth experience in both her hospital classes in the 1950s and 1960s and in her private classes in the “studio” of her New York City apartment building, where she began teaching in the 1960s and continues to teach today.
