The Rebozo wrap originates in Mexico where it is used as a garment, baby carrier and a means to carry products home from the market. They also are used by midwives to reposition babies from a posterior position to anterior one. The price above will get you a basic wrap that is approx 3 yards long and 30 inches wide. Wider wraps are available upon request. I cut the fabric into a parallelogram shape and serge the edges.
For a more authentic look, fringes can be requested (as pictured), but will cost an additional $10 due to the amount of time it takes to pull 9 inches of weft thread out and tie off the remaining warp threads.

Purple – 9 yards available
Yellow – 6 yards x 23inches; (3) cuts 3 yards x 46 inches
Prices for custom orders will vary depending on final

Women who opted to have their babies at institutions often were forced to share beds with other women while rats crawled on the floor below them. Male doctors would do frequent internal exams, often right after working on cadavers of women that had died from childbed fever. Nurses were
