Rebozo: Partner Practice for Pregnancy, Childbirth and Postpartum

With Kasia Pokrop Pokrop & Ombretta Dettori

The use of Rebozo, a traditional Mexican woven scarf, is skillfully and respectfully applied in the Netherlands by birth doulas, midwives, and some prenatal educators. The aim is to:

  • Ease some of the most common discomfort you experience during pregnancy
  • Create space for the baby to go into the most optimal position
  • Support the birthing person in achieving more comfort
  • Ease any sensations you may feel during labor
  • Create space for the baby to move deeper in the birth canal
  • Release tensions in the shoulders after feeding and holding the baby
  • Apply simple comfort measures and massage techniques
  • Bring in deeper relaxation.


Kasia and Ombretta will draw from their experience as a childbirth educator and doula respectively to give you a broader set of tools that will effectively benefit your preparation for childbirth.

 

What will you learn?

Partner practices with rebozo for pregnancy and labor:

  • To relieve pain
  • To bring relaxation
  • To rotate your baby (if needed) into the most optimal position for birth
  • To bring progress in labor
  • To start labor naturally after your due date
  • To bring relief in the early motherhood time, but not only..


This workshop is for pregnant women during their second and third trimester and their partners. One additional benefit of the Rebozo practice is to bring the couple together in a fun way, while they learn simple tools to ease pregnancy and labor as well as creating further trust and a sense of commitment in the experience of birthing together.

Practical information

Bring along your partner, a birth companion, or a friend with whom you can practice. Rebozos will be made available for each couple to practice during the workshop. In order for you to keep up with your practice, we advise you to either buy a Rebozo (that you can later use as a sling once the baby is born) or to use a big and long cotton woven scarf.

Note: The price includes spots for both mother and partner!
