ABOUT GENA’S REBOZO CLASS
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 partner a way to use their hands in a powerful way for the birthing person. The partner works smarter with the Rebozo, which becomes their invitation to be involved in the birth of their child.
Partners and Rebozo Fun
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 relaxing the birthing person 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 every day. 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. Partners included.
Gena’s Rebozo class is where the tradition has come alive for over 1,100 doulas and midwives across North America, Africa, and soon 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 those expecting, their partners, 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.
After completing the class, use the Rebozo Certified logo to show your clients the value the Rebozo can bring to their birth.

WHAT DOULAS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
WHAT MIDWIVES ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
If you are a birth professional and sign up for one of our classes, then you have the potential of being called to a birth at the very time that the class meets. It has happened before and it will happen again. If you are called to a birth and cannot attend, we will give you access to the online course.
The nature of scheduling events all across the country gets tricky because there has to be a certain number of tickets sold in order to make the travel viable. Because of this we have a NO REFUND policy.
