Abstract

Women having their babies at the Busselton District Hospital during the past two years have been able to attend a course of instruction based on the psychoprophylactic method of painless childbirth. Approximately half the patients delivered at the hospital have attended these classes. The results obtained suggest that this method is superior to other methods adopted in this area previously, probably because of more complete cooperation by all the staff concerned and the simplicity of the method. Although our training is based mainly on that of Fernand Lamaze, we have varied the positioning used throughout labour, and altered the rates of respiration used during the first stage.
