“I attended Gena’s Comfort Measures in Labor Using the Rebozo this evening and LOVED it! I’ve known that the rebozo could be useful in labor but I had no idea just how many uses it had. Gena helped me double the tools in my doula “tool box” in a little more than an hour and I can’t wait to use them at my next birth! I’m grateful for the ebook she provides as well so that if I forget anything she taught or I’m feeling stumped, I can just pull out my phone and use the ebook as reference when I’m at a birth. Thank you, Gena, it was great!” -Mandy Jeffries, Doula, Dallas Georgia
“I had so much fun learning all about the rebozo today! Thank you so much to my fabulous teacher, Gena Kirby ofProgressive Parenting! I am so excited to get one and to use the techniques during future doula clients’ births, and some day, my own!” -Sara Hanson, Doula San Francisco, California
