What is a rebozo: A rebozo is a miraculous piece of fabric, much like a scarf, hand made and woven with love. Rebozos have been used for comfort and connection during childbirth for centuries.
This course covers the use of rebozo for pregnancy, labor, childbirth and beyond; bringing partners together during labor and facilitating the one of a kind magical connection that can only occur during birth. Learn rebozo techniques for comforting mothers and connecting partners, during the pregnancy and birth process. Discuss brain wave states and how they relate to birth, death and life- in general. (A student favorite!) And learn to identify the concerns of your potential clients and their birth team- in order to ROCK your interviews- with sections from Joe Valley's Dad Certified course.
Doulas, Midwives, Doctors, Nurses, and Childbirth Educators will spend a day looking at birth in a new light.
What the Rebozo Class Is NOT:
This class is not about just teaching techniques. This class is about sharing knowledge of how to use this ancient technology to provide strength, comfort and relaxation to the laboring woman and her partner. This class is not about turning babies. Mother's bodies and their babies KNOW how to be born. When they are made to feel relaxed and safe, this primal knowledge comes easily. The rebozo is there to provide the safety and support, necessary to allow for this innate knowledge to show itself. Our students don’t teach how to move a baby. Rather we share how to get mom relaxed enough to allow for the babe, in Delta, to find his or her own way; in their own time.
A minimum of 10 pre-paid registrants needed to proceede with the class. NO REFUNDS will be given. If you are called to a birth the day before/day of, please contact Bridgette, ASAP via email or text. You will be given the option to attend a workshop at a later date.
Bridgette's info is: 248-882-2015 or email@example.com
Please bring your rebozo (or what you use for one), a yoga mat and a potluck dish to pass. Dress comfortably, you will be sitting/laying/stretching, etc.
This class is approved for 6 CEUs through ICEA/DONA
