Rebozo is a shawl used in the Central American tradition for many purposes, and it’s a vital companion of the woman in the birth process. With a rebozo the woman’s body is moved rhythmically, like in a massage, during the pregnancy, in the birth and at the postpartum period.

Perfect also as a short wrap to carry babies and as a long scarf/shawl for women and men.

Now recognized worldwide as a marvelous companion for Doulas, Midwifes and Families during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

It is used e.g. to balance and relax the pelvis, uterus and ligaments to allow more room for the baby to rotate into the optimal position for birth.

It is also used to ease pain, to work with the pressure waves in birth, to relax and connect with the body and the baby and to build birth space and privacy in hospital.

A rebozo can also be used in postpartum period in the sealing ceremony to “close” the body of the mother and to help the intestines and womb to return on their correct places, and to carry babies.
