4.27.14 – Lamaze is a Lie

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.”

What they don’t teach you is how to respond when your wife’s eyes turn red and pop out of her head Large Marge style, as she screams,  “I AM BREATHING!!!! WHHHAT THE F$&@ DO YOU THINK THIS IS CALLED!???”
