2. All kind of rebozo massage during pregnancy and birth.
The rebozo has the right size – so you get the best effect
Rebozo Emma has the exact dimensions both in length (between 2.20 and 3 meters) which suits the different functions (rebozo massage and baby carrier), and the width 70 cm which is perfect for a good grip with your hands and for the pregnant woman’s belly or pelvis where it is not too much fabric around it.
The exact measurements are important so that your partner / doula / midwife can give you the massage in the right position. See your size here: Find your size
The rebozo is designed for the purpose
The rebozo is thin but strong and is developed for the purpose. All Emma’s rebozos are hand-woven, made of cotton which gives a good grip to the woman’s body, for the rebozo massage techniques.
With a towel or a bed sheet you may not achieve the same effect as it is impractical when you have too much fabric between your hands and around the pregnant’s body to do the techniques. It can also slips off the body so the person doing the massage puts a lot of effort to do it right.
“I am a midwife and have worked with rebozo for many years and thus tested many different qualities and materials. It is so important that the fabric and weave feels right - to be able to work properly with the rebozo massage. The Emma rebozo from Rebozo Copenhagen fits me perfectly. Super nice material - and really comfortable to use. I'm so happy with it.” – Susanne @jorde_moderen
3.It is so comfortable as a scarf during winter or a shawl during summer, I recommend the sizes from 2 to 3 meters. It is warm during winter and so elegant.
"You should not think of a rebozo as a massage and baby carrier, but also as a scarf you can use when the children have grown up. I like that the rebozo has such beautiful color and patterns. I am so happy with my rebozo, it has a good quality, is soft and nice.” – Durita, mom
“Having met the Rebozo Copenhagen I fell madly in love with it, such a compact and delicate texture, full of love and history. I find the ergonomic and perfect rebozo right from pregnancy, to carry our baby and in the everyday life of our days, as a shawl, scarf or bedspread. It’s multiple uses make it unique and indispensable.” – Barbara @baby.d.m, Babywearing Consultant
4.As a blanket for your baby specially during summer or within in winter.
"Wilfred usually finds peace in the sleeping bag but these days are too hot, so the loosely woven rebozo Emma is really good at giving him the feeling of being enveloped without sweating☀️ He can easily take his arms free and his legs have been loosened after the picture was taken, so he has freedom of movement while he sleeps❤️"⠀

Rebozo massage during pregnancy and childbirth.
Rebozo Massages are a natural and safe pain relief method recommended by midwives and doulas. You can do it in the comfort of your home with the help of your partner. Rebozo massage techniques can also help to bring your baby into the right position for birth.
“Our experience with rebozo has been great – and I say “our” because rebozo was an amazing tool not only to alleviate my pregnancy symptoms, such as lower back pain, but also to get my partner actively involved in the whole process. The rebozo technique is easy to learn, so after a workshop with Rebozo Copenhagen, my husband could perform the movements, which helped so much with the back pain, as well as with the positioning of the baby.” – Camilla.

Ideal Size for you (pregnant women, doulas and midwives)
