Rebozo workshop

Use of the Rebozo for Labour and Birth for Doulas

The Calgary Doula Association is thrilled to welcome Sonya Duffee's workshop to Calgary!


In many cultures around the world, Rebozos have been used by birthing women and their support team to help the mum to feel more comfortable and relax, and to encourage the reposition of babies, ease labour and back pains and conserve mother’s energy.

This 2.5 hour hands on informal workshop will leave you excited to try out the many uses of a Rebozo during your next birth and share what you have learned with your client.

This workshop has been approved for CEU's from CAPPA, DONA and New Beginnings.
