Why am I the right instructor?

Picture yourself, heavily pregnant, uncomfortable, and fed up waiting for baby to arrive. Imagine yourself in labour feeling uncomfortable, and later on after your baby's birth, feeling open and unstable. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a magic and wonderfully simple tool to support you through these moments?

In all of these three situations, a traditional shawl like the Mexican Rebozo, can provide the most amazing comfort and support. Imagine having your hips wrapped and your bump supported, or being rocked so your whole body relaxes and softens, helping you move back into comfort and a better frame of mind whilst you wait for labour to start… having your bump lifted and rocked helping your muscles and ligaments relax and giving your baby a chance to move into an optimal position, and having your tense muscles gently wobbled during labour, promoting both comfort, progress and relaxation? And finally having your hips and abdomen gently supported after the birth?

Many women suffer needlessly during pregnancy, labour and birth. Physical discomfort during pregnancy is treatable. It isn't normal to suffer and don't believe people who tell you that "there is nothing you can do about it". Similarly, comfort in labour can be easily brought by movement and relaxation. There is a direct link between tension and pain. Physical tension can  in turn make it more difficult to fully relax and make labour more difficult to cope with. Often there is a lot that can be done to increase comfort levels, and it's easy to learn and to do.

A simple and extremely versatile way to provide comfort and relaxation is to use a scarf or shawl like a Mexican Rebozo, which can be used in many way to support a woman through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

Comments from students of the online course

I really enjoyed working my way through the online course. It was broken up into bite size chunks which made it easier to work through and I could dip in and out when necessary which was handy, especially around my little ones. The video tutorials and the written instructions alongside are clear and it's handy as you can go back over them as many times as necessary. Sophie is clearly very passionate about this subject and it shines through. Abby, Doula

I’m really impressed with the delivery and quality of the course - very easy to understand and a pleasure to watch. Jo Saville, Yoga teacher and doula

I found Sophie's online rebozo course very helpful not only in my birth work but also in my breath work. After getting trough all easy to follow videos and information, I am able to apply the techniques in my practice as a birth doula and a breath practitioner. I found the skills which I gained from the course excellent tools which I can use in my work in order to help my clients. I also found Sophie passionate, very helpful and available in case of any additional questions. I am happy that found and took the course. Kasia Lipka Borodej

I completed Sophie’s online rebozo workshop recently and cannot recommend it enough. It was easy to follow, had great demonstration videos and was full of useful information. The course explains at each stage of pregnancy, the best use of the rebozo. Sophie talks you through each move and demonstrates it so it is very easy to replicate. I have been looking for a rebozo course for a long time and was so happy I found this one. Also, because it’s online, it can be accessed at a time and place convenient to you. The self massage part was my favourite new technique because it gives you something to use whether pregnant or not. Laura Carr, Midwife

I have also completed a Gail Tully , Spinning babies online workshop which also includes the Rebozo. I feel your course really compliments this perfectly especially with the osteopath comments. I offered my client the relaxing wrapping the shoulder technique and self care massage. She really enjoyed this and said it was great she didn’t have to do anything but relax. We did wrapping the hips and shaking the apples but kneeling down and resting on the sofa. She felt this was a great one . She is also a midwife so really understood that using this in times of being on a time line or feeling a stuck could encourage and help the baby to move. I’m super pleased I took this online course with you it really compliments everything I have learned as a birth Doula . Tracey Hopgood
