My name is Rosevera, originally from Ghana, West Africa and currently living in the Bay Area. My work is driven by a passion and love for babies, mamas and wellness. I've had the privilege of serving families as a nanny for over twenty-five years and along the way have gained a deep respect and love for the mothers that trusted me to love and care for their babies and families. I consider it a tremendous gift to feel chosen by my work in supporting new and growing families.
I enjoy... Spending quality time with family and close friends. I love making time for the beach, and enjoy day trips to cozy beach towns (Capitola and Carmel are two of my favorites ). I'm fascinated by nutrition science, human physiology, especially the physiology of pregnancy, labor and birth. Love discovering new foods and experimenting with recipes. I'm a bit obsessed with books, love writing. I enjoy music and singing .....
My Personal health story... My own journey back to health has taught me a great deal about the impact of nutrition and lifestyle on health and wellness. In 2006, I walked away from an engagement and lost my father around the same time. The overwhelming emotional stress from grief took a painful toll on my health and left me feeling sick, struggling to function and frustrated . I struggled with chronic fatigue, digestive problems with a growing list of food sensitivities. I had unbearable PMS, exhausted adrenals, a week nervous system that resulted in me having bouts of anxiety and what felt like the longest battle with depression. My body was screaming for help, and instinctively I knew my symptoms were cries from underlying root issues in my health. In an effort to understand what was needed to rebuild and restore health I embarked on a journey of learning. My journey has allowed me the opportunity to learn from different healing modalities and along the way discovered the power of nutrition for healing the human body at a cellular level. I'm incredibly fascinated with the human physiology and deeply believe in the body's innate ability to be resilient and heal. It's been very rewarding to experience it pay off in my own quest for wellness and feels great to not live with many of the symptoms I've struggled with. I believe wellness is a journey with incredible discoveries and celebrations along the way, and I'm definitely still on my own. I am honored by the opportunity to coach and support others to discover what makes them thrive in their amazingly complex and wonderful bodies!
My Doula Calling... I fell in love with the heart and art of "doulaing" when my sister-in-law was preparing for the birth of my twin nephews. I attended my first "tea with the midwives " with her and learned about the work of a doula for the first time. A doula's support to a pregnant mom aligns with everything I believe mamas deserve to have on their journey into motherhood. Creating a positive and calm space so a mother can feel safe, supported, and confident to focus on the very amazing work and experience of birthing her baby. I am trained and certified as a birth doula; trained with Mama Center (The birth coach method) here in San Jose and also with The Matrona ( holistic doula training). I've had the incredible honor of serving women and their partner's during this transforming time in a couple's life.
Simply Nurturing... It is an absolute thrill and gift for me to knit my passions and experiences together in my work with Simply Nurturing. Simply Nurturing is committed to helping women and their partners optimize wellness preconception, boost fertility and have a healthy and positive pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience.
I'm a committed student of women's health and nutrition science in order to bring the most relevant information and tools to the women I serve.
