Hi, I’m Rosa Davies (she/her) and I’ve been running my classes and working as a Doula for over 16 years. I have loved working with so many pregnant folk and their partners over the years and supporting new mums postnatally. I don’t know the exact number of parents who I’ve supported but well into the 1000s!
In recent years I’ve expanded my practice into bodywork with Mizan Therapy, Myofascial Release and Postnatal Recovery Massage. Although I’m mostly known for my support through the childbirth year, these wonderful treatments are suitable for any age / stage of life.
I teach Mizan Wombspace workshops which are a prerequisite for the Mizan Practitioner Training, I’m learning to teach Mizan Practitioner Trainings, I assess new and current Mizan Practitioners and assess the new practitioner’s case studies.
I love my work and I am always learning.
I began my birth worker training with Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers in 2004 on their Paramana Doula course and went on to complete a two year course in Natural Active Birth and Parenting with Kassandra Clemens, qualifying in 2007.
There has always been some aspect of body work in my role as a birth worker but I started on this path more formally in 2017 with The School of Bodywork and then Mizan Therapy later that year.
I’m thirsty for knowledge and I regularly attend courses, workshops and study days.
