How we can work together
Mia was born in Calgary, Canada, and studied at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, graduating in 1998. From there she practiced both chiropractic and craniosacral therapy until committing solely to cranial work and prebirth and birth healing in 2003. After opening Emerging Families, a centre dedicated to therapy, research, and education for the prebirth and birth period, she published her first book, The Secret Life of Babies: How Our Prebirth and Birth Experiences Shape Our World, 2014. Her second book, out this year, is a practical guide to healing prebirth and birth at any age. She follows in the tradition of R.D. Laing through her mentor, Andrew Feldmar—whose only approach is to suspend any protocol and labels, and to respectfully follow the patient who is entrusted to guide his or her own life. Her techniques are also influenced by Osteopathy, Body-Mind Centering, and her time serving the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, as well as by her years in The Orphan Wisdom School in Ontario, Canada, and studying with Dr. and Elder, Malidoma Some.
