    I'm wondering if this should simply be 'antenatal classes' - or is it more specific than that? I hadn't heard of Lamaze, but it appears it's one component of antenatal classes.

    Should the term be 'cours d'accouchement sans douleur', or can you use 'accouchement sans douleur' without 'cours d''?
