Rebozo techniques can be used during pregnancy, labour, birth, the post-natal period, during menstruation, and in fact at any time you need comfort. A special way of supporting a woman during her pregnancy, labour and birth, is to use the rebozo shawl in different techniques to relieve discomforts and aid labour.
Rebozo is a traditional Mexican cloth, used by women and worn in various ways, as shade from the sun, or as an accessory. It can also be used by mothers-to-be to relieve pregnancy discomforts, give support, and bring a feeling of nurture to the body as it is wrapped closely.
In our partner pregnancy yoga for labour and birth class we use several of the pregnancy techniques using both traditional rebozo, and long, wide scarves. A large sarong will also be appropriate in pregnancy, if it is strong and not at all floaty.
Please get in contact if you would like a private demonstration about the benefits of rebozo techniques in pregnancy.
Rebozo is very useful post-pregnancy, both to carry the baby close to Mum (in the fourth trimester) and for ‘closing the bones’ after birth.
After the birth I highly recommend at least one post-natal reflexology session with a ‘closing the bones’ wrap to help heal the body and aid recovery after the pressure of labour and birth.
If you would like to discover some techniques for yourself and your partner to use in the labour and birth, and are not attending the pregnancy yoga or partner workshop, I can provide a half hour private workshop in your home.
