Reveals the surprising history of the Lamaze method of childbirth, also known as psychoprophylaxis, by tracing this psychological, non-pharmacological approach to obstetric pain relief from its origins in the USSR in the 1940s, to France in the 1950s, and to the United States in the 1960s and 1970s.
