Welcome to the Rebozo techniques to resolve labour dystocia masterclass
Picture a first time mother in labour. Things take a while. Contractions are uneven. She feels pain her her hips or back. She starts to push, and things feel hopeful, but after a while there are no signs of baby. A vaginal examination is carried out and she is found to be “only” 6cm dilated, with a back to back baby. Her caregiver tells her that she needs to stop pushing. She cannot. She is strongly advised to accept an epidural so that she can stop pushing. She is exhausted and in pain and the promise of relief and rest is too tempting. An epidural is put in place. The baby doesn’t rotate and is born by forceps or cesarean.
Does this sound familiar?
What if I told you there was a better way?
If you have had enough of witness labour and birth taking longer than the prescribed timing by modern obstetrics and the use of obstetric intervention that fly in the face of birth biomechanics being offered as the only solution (because how exactly is lying immobile with an anesthetized pelvic floor on your back going to help a malpositioned baby rotate?). f you have had enough of seeing new mothers blame themselves for it, then I’d like to tell you there is a better way.
What if I told you that there are unbelievably simply positional and rebozo techniques which can help resolve issues extremely effectively and safely?
Witnessing many such births was what that led me to learn biomechanics and rebozo techniques.
After I learn these I started witnessing miracles. A short jiggle with a rebozo helped babies to turn by themselves in record time. I saw women being told they needed to go to theatre birth their babies without help within an hour.
This is why I started sharing these skills, in live workshops and in my rebozo online course.
I want to share stories with you in my Rebozo techniques for labour dystocia masterclass.
In this one hour long class, I will demonstrate techniques and share my own real stories that demonstrate how effective these techniques are.
By the end of the masterclass you will have:
- Learnt how simple rebozo techniques can help shift things when labour gets stuck or takes a long time
- Hear about many “miracle” birth stories where these techniques help labour progress and avoid obstretical interventions
- Watch some videos about how the techniques are done
- Learnt how these techniques can be taught to birth partners, even remotely
- Understand the anatomical reasons behind why these techniques work
By the end of this class, you understand why a rebozo is the most effective and versatile tool in your birth bag.
You will also know how to access further knowledge and training in these techniques.
I will also tell you about my rebozo online course, where you can learn these techniques, and will include a special offer for people attending the class.
