A Reboso Sling 

The perfect companion for maternity labor to reduce the chances of a C-section

Why should I use The Birth Sling?

Increasing evidence shows that upright labor positions such as kneeling, squatting, or standing help reduce the risks of a C-section by 25%Modern birth practices promote horizontal positions during labor, which works against gravity and makes contractions less effective. This can lead to longer labor, greater pain, more interventions, and higher risks for a C-section.

For centuries, women used to give birth in upright positions with the use of ropes and trees to get support. Indigenous women all over the world still have their babies this way. The Birth Sling is a new take on this ancient birth tool, helping you gain comfort, strength, and stability–all contributing to an easier and faster labor.
