What is a Rebozo?

The rebozo is a traditional Mexican shawl that is long enough to wrap around a woman’s body, with a little extra (about 4-5 feet). A large scarf or piece of fabric can also be used as a rebozo.

How can a Rebozo be used?

Rebozos can be used as wraps and shawls to keep you warm in cooler weather, as pregnancy and labor tools for midwives and doulas and as baby slings.

How is a rebozo used during labor?

When used by a labor coach, the rebozo acts like an extension of your arms. It allows you to help support the laboring mother’s weight so she doesn’t have to. It can also be used to help with fetal positioning. It can help to successfully turn a baby from a posterior position (baby’s back to mothers back) to an anterior one (baby’s back to the front).
