In February 2016 I attended a Rebozo Workshop facilitated by Nikki Mather, birth and postnatal doula at The Doula Element; organised by Queen’s University Belfast Midwifery Society.
The workshop included information to complement the practical use of rebozo in pregnancy and birth. We explored the historic use of the Mexican rebozo and discussed how rebozo can be used as a tool during pregnancy and labour for relaxation and along with a combination of different movements and positions. We discovered how rebozo may promote optimal fetal positioning and how it can be used as part of your journey. Different techniques were demonstrated which I can share with women and their partners, so they can practice and experience the magical relaxation rebozo can provide.
