ABOUT GENA’S ONLINE WORKSHOP
There has been a Rebozo buzz this year. It started as a small murmur and it has grown into a roar born from the flaming passion of doulas and midwives across the world. What has materialized is a growing knowledge of techniques to use with expectant parents. Furthermore, the Rebozo has brought with it a tangible metaphor of how a birth team collaborates. Rebozo techniques give the dad a way to use his hands in a powerful way for his partner. He works smarter with the Rebozo, which becomes his invitation to be involved in the birth of his child.
Doulas love the rebozo because it is the tool in their birth bag that creates an event. It brings intimacy, fun, strength, and inspiration. The Rebozo has also brought a clinical level of support for moving babies and relieving pressure during key birthing moments.
Intimacy with the Rebozo
The Rebozo is alive right now because it is developing in the minds of birth professionals and being used in creative ways everyday. There is no finite collection of techniques written in a book somewhere. Furthermore, not one person carries all the information about it. It is a living tradition that is passed on from one woman to the next, who then, in turn, shares it with the people in her world. Dads included. Bring your clients and learn side by side with them! You will already have had fun beside them and a chance for intimacy before you labor in real life together. Your clients will love that their care provider is always learning new things.
Gena’s Rebozo class is where the tradition has come alive for over 1,100 doulas and midwives across North America, South Africa,and soon to be Europe, and Australia. Gena’s success is simple: she reminds people why they are passionate about birth, and she shows them how the Rebozo can carry that inspiration to mommas, daddies, and babies everywhere.
You know that feeling of excitement the follows a new discovery? You might have said, “Aha!” Things fall into place. Your shoulders relax. Your eyes become bright. Do you think you could make yourself feel that feeling right now? Here’s some help: watch this video of one of Gena’s classes, and get the FEELING.
Notes Regarding the 2.5 hour Doula Training:
Wear comfortable clothing. We will be moving a lot.
Bring a yoga mat or a blanket to aid in your comfort. We will be all on the floor together. IF you already have a rebozo BRING it so you can see how to use the one you have.
Bring something to take notes on and feel free to take pictures. I would prefer you not share any video from the class but sharing pictures are fine. Please feel free to friend me on FB https://www.facebook.com/msgenakirby
