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 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.

Partners really “get” it after attending a workshop. Even though the class is geared to train doulas, we highly encourage you to invite your clients.

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 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. Dads included. Bring your clients and learn side by side with them! You will already have had fun along side 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 1,000 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.

After completing the class, use the Rebozo Certified logo to show your clients the value the Rebozo can bring to their birth.

 

Here’s what other birth professionals; Doctors, Midwives, doulas, and partners have thought about Gena’s workshop:

NOTES:

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.

    • Hi Seena,

      This really is designed to be a 2 day workshop (and the CEUs are given for the full 2 day workshop). The first covers an introduction to the rebozo, community building, and relaxation techniques with the rebozo. It is an essential precursor to day 2, which covers more active labor and pushing techniques. The whole workshop is very hands on and works best when you do it all together!

      We only have space for 20 people!

      Best,
      Emily

    • Both days there will be 16 people in the workshop DAY one is comfort/relaxation measures, day two is more moving techniques (mom not baby)

  • Hello,

    @emily. This is Crystal Sada – Monica said I could contact you. Gena has agreed to allow me to sign up with a deposit of $150 for the workshop plus a Rebozo and to pay the balance by the end of this month. Can you tell me how I can go about doing that? Thank you and I am so excited to have Gena coming to the area. I have been a childbirth educator for 38 years and use Rebozo information in my classes. Take care,

    • Hi Crystal,

      So you’d like to do the general admission plus a rebozo ($310 in total), with a payment of $150 now and the remaining $160 at the end of the month? That works just fine. You can just Paypal Gena directly for both payments (progressiveparentingradio@gmail.com) and make sure you comment “Philly Workshop plus rebozo, payment 1 of 2” so she can track it. Let me know once you’ve paid the deposit and I’ll send a ticket your way!

      Best,
      Emily

  • Hi!
    I would love to sign up for this amazing course, and am wondering if I could bring my little one. He’s a super chill, ebf, 3 month old and I could easily wear him both days.

    Thanks!
    Jo
