Rebozo Uses for Labor and Birth
This hands-on session will introduce new and experienced doulas to the many uses of the Rebozo in pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. The workshop will include an introduction to the importance of movement and energy in birth, specific uses of the rebozo to encourage optimal fetal positioning, and considerations for using the rebozo in different settings. We will explore how the rebozo can relieve common pregnancy discomforts, enhance relaxation in labor, provide support for specific positions, be used to help the pelvis move, and even cure a headache. Come prepared to get on the floor and experience both ends of the Rebozo in practice. Illustrated handouts will help you remember all you learn once you return home.
Participants should bring a yoga mat or other floor padding, a pillow, and their own rebozo if they already own one. Please wear clothing that allows for comfortable moving, squatting, bending, and lying down during our session.
Rebozos will be available for sale during the training. They will range in price from $35-$50.
You do not need to be a certified or experienced doula to attend any of these sessions; you do need to have completed a basic doula training or be in midwifery or nursing school. Midwives, midwifery students, L&D nurses, and childbirth educators are also welcome to attend.
