Cerrado – Rebozo ceremony

This is a beautiful way to close your Postpartum period from 6 weeks (onward) after the birth and to enhance your first weeks of motherhood. This done with 4 hands with the help of a wonderful Doula sister who is also a massage therapist.

We start with a relaxing tea blend, then a soothing herbal bath, a 4 hands massage and the Rebozo closing ritual. In all it takes around 2.5-3 hours. You can have your baby with you in bath.

It is delightful treat for any new mother, a moment to be cared and pampered.
