How to Use a Rebozo in Labor // 9 Ways
Video taken from the channel: Taylar Klecan
Here I share 3 simple techniques you can use during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. Pregnancy technique. Hip wrapping. During pregnancy the rebozo can be wrapped tightly around the hips to provide support to the pelvic girdle. The rebozo can be tied at the front or at the back.
Other ways the rebozo can be used are: To aid in techniques to realign and adjust the body to allow the baby to rotate into a more favorable position if it is To lift the belly to relieve back pressure during labor To wrap around the entire body like a hug, to offer the mother comfort and ease. A rebozo is a traditional Mexican shawl that women use in a varriety of ways during their pregnancy and labor as well as the care of their infants on a daily basis. The rebozo is a long piece of woven cloth usually 5 feet or longer in length. Another use of a rebozo in labor is just to relieve the mom of back pain.
For this, you do the same positions already mentioned with the rebozo wrapped around the belly, and sifting from behind or over. Squatting in birth is known to shorten the birth canal and alleviate pressure. “Rebozo” means “shawl” in Spanish.
It’s a traditional Mexican shawl about 4-5 feet in length. It is a multifunctional tool used before labor, used to help laboring women birth and used for carrying your baby around after birth!Rebozo can be used in many different ways during labor but one of the most common is to use it on the birthing person’s hips, using controlled motions to help move the hips or sway them from side to side a little bit. The rebozo lift and sift movement can be used in pregnancy, but is more commonly used during labor both when relaxing in between contractions. To use the rebozo in this fashion, ensure the edge of the rebozo is under the belly.
Cross the rebozo in the back (don’t twist the straps) and then place over the shoulder so that mom can grab them. Mom can then slightly pull on the straps to give a little support to her belly. Adding a sway can be nice in between contractions.
The workshop is specially developed for BiA Doula students and graduates and builds upon the knowledge and experience you already have. After this day you have more tools and confidence to introduce and use the rebozo with your clients in pregnancy and birth. The workshop is taught by Mirjam de Keijzer and Thea van Tuijl from Rebozo.nl. Rebozo is traditionally used also to carry babies, and can be done with the very same rebozo that accompanied the woman during the pregnancy and birth. It is also a great baby blanket, a cover for the sun, a towel on the beach and the list goes on.
