I disagree Lamaze was a life saver for me. I wound up with an emergency c-section, and yes I did have pain meds once. I'm an old fart this was before epidurals. I was in active labor 32 hours. I helped a lot to learn to not fight the pain. The more you tense up and hold your breath the worse it hurts. Funny thing. Myself and my husband have used Lamaze breathing after serious accidents. He had a bad bike accident and had road rash over 90% of his body. In the 2 hours it took for us to find him and get him to the ER he says the Lamaze kept him from freaking out. I used it after a serious car accident.
