Are ear-squats good for pregnant mothers?

Disclaimer: This post is meant to be a satire or sarcasm, whichever you want to call it (as always with some other posts in this blog). It is not meant to encourage pregnant mothers to perform ear squats as a form of a Lamaze exercise in order for easy labor as I do not have any information on this. Reading the following post is at your own discretion. It should not be misinterpreted as a post to jeopardise any pregnant mothers' community (if any).

So, now it seems that both Cik Puan Wan Zawati and Miss Puan 'X' are preggers. Both are married, you see.

Thus, came the question: Are ear-squats good for pregnant mothers? I mean, I'm not too sure if they are included in Lamaze exercises.

[deleted-seemed offensive to someone]

The Lamaze Technique is a natural childbirth technique developed in the 1940s by French obstetrician Dr. Fernand Lamaze as an alternative to the use of medical intervention during labor. Dr. Lamaze was influenced by Soviet childbirth practices, which involved breathing and relaxation techniques under the supervision of a "monitrice" or midwife. The Lamaze method gained popularity in the United States after Marjorie Karmel wrote about her experiences in her 1959 book Thank You, Dr. Lamaze.

Get your hands on this video if you're interested. (No, not that nude squat; this is a lamaze video!)
