Lamaze Breathing Technique | Lamaze Breathing Classes at CMC

What is Lamaze Breathing?

Lamaze breathing is a breathing technique based on the idea that controlled breathing can enhance relaxation and decrease the perception of pain. Some of the important techniques for controlled breathing include:

  • Slow, deep breathing.
  • Maintaining a rhythm
  • Breathing through your mouth or nose
  • Keeping your eyes open or closed focusing on one simple physical item, such as a photograph or your partner.
