New Delhi: Pregnancy, the period between conception and childbirth, can be a testing time for parents-to-be, especially for expecting women, but with proper mental and physical preparation this trying time can turn into a beautiful experience for both of them.

Ferdinand Lamaze, a French obstetrician, encourages both parents to address their fears and emotions regarding childbirth so that they can work together as a team while dealing with the impending labour pains.

Lamaze insists that pregnant women should keep a check on their diet, consume adequate nutrition and let go of their worries and stress by having a positive attitude towards childbirth.

Women should also realise the importance of breastfeeding and what is the correct technique to nurse a baby, Lamaze added.

Lamaze offers classes to expecting parents on how to happily handle pregnancy and also prepares them for post-partum .
