Booklist Review

Lamaze classes offer instruction on physical conditioning designed to make unmedicated childbirth a more painless and rewarding experience. This guide presents a variety of aerobic, stretching, yoga, and resistance routines that enhance the Lamaze breathing and exercise techniques. Novak, an experienced Lamaze instructor, concentrates on a regimen that will improve conditioning of the abdomen, pelvis, hips, arms, and back to prepare the body for labor. Each chapter presents a short description of the specific body region and several exercises illustrated with the help of photos or diagrams. Novak also presents helpful tips on nutrition, posture, and postpartum exercises, including those to aid recovery after cesarean section. A solid addition to larger public libraries. No index. JMM.
