Thank You, Dr Lamaze by Marjorie Karmel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In the 1950s - inspired by Grantly Dick-Read's 'Childbirth without Fear' - Marjorie Karmel, an American woman in Paris pregnant with her first child, sought out pioneering French obstetrician Fernand Lamaze. This bestselling account of the subsequent birth of her children and her experiences of antenatal education and hospital care on both sides of the Atlantic was to change for ever the way women give birth. 'Thank you, Dr Lamaze' is the moving and often very funny story of a woman's experiences when faced with both the medical profession and her friends' traditional preconceptions about giving birth. A witty and perceptive author, Marjorie Karmel is once more set to inspire a new generation of mothers-to-be with this delightful book.
