Rebozo shawls are "now in" as you might say. However, many mothers or doulas still do not know what in the world is a rebozo? How do I use it? We plan to try to answer those questions and history behind the rebozo on this blog. Today, we are just going to briefly talk about rebozos.
What is a rebozo? A rebozo is a Mexican shawl (various lengths) and they are not always made in Mexico--but the history goes back to Mexican ladies wearing their babies in a shawl. The idea behind the rebozo though is also to help a woman in labor! The rebozo can be tied around the mother's hips or back to help her with labor pains (contractions/pressure waves!)
