What is Rebozo?
A Rebozo is a Mexican shawl/scarf. The Rebozo techniques originated in Mexico when women (and midwifes) used their long shawls, to wrap around themselves during labour which supported the weight of the baby and achieved a gentle massage. It can also help a partner to relieve the mother/pregnant person of the weight they are carrying and help them to be in a position that facilitates labour and birth.
This technique has now been developed and is becoming more and more well known.

"We found Terri’s rebozo workshop absolutely wonderful. Whoever thought working with a scarf could make you feel so amazing! The biggest benefit for me was the feeling of weightlessness that it can create. You don’t get a break from being pregnant and the weight that you have to carry around so when someone supports your bump through the rebozo techniques it’s quite honestly amazing. It’s also so relaxing, especially the position where the scarf is supporting your head. We loved doing the workshop as a couple and look forward to practising the techniques to use during the birth of our baby. Terri delivered the workshop in her usual informative and supportive style, we have so much trust in her and her ability to help us make the birth of our baby the natural and miraculous experience it should be. Thank you Terri!"
