After Birth Ceremony “La Cerrada”

After a woman gives birth, there is a special ceremony called a “cerrada” where we close her body to honor the child that came through 6 months earlier. It is a time to give loving touch to the woman, recognize her offering to the world, give love and celebrate the dedication to self growth. Isa is a midwife in Tepoztlán, Mexico who offers cerradas, workshops and counseling guidance for woman throughout all stages of life.
