Partner Rebozo : Practices & Techniques

Partner Rebozo : Practices & Techniques

Led by: Hanna Malm & Itzel Rosales of Mighty Mothers

No experience necessary.

For centuries, wise people, mothers, grandmothers and midwives of Latin America have been using the rebozo in birth as a tool to increase strength, comfort and relaxation for pregnant, laboring, birthing people and new parents. The use of the rebozo for supporting pregnancy and birth is based on the ancient knowledge and observation that when a body feels relaxed, supported and safe, the natural processes of birth and the intuitive knowledge of how to move with it easily falls into place.

In this workshop both pregnant and supporting partners will learn more than rebozo techniques, they will see how the rebozo can help them truly connect by using the rebozo as a grounded, smart and loving extension of their arms and care.
