Birth of Holden James Ruiz
"From the moment I first spoke with Rosie, I felt an immediate connection with her. We spoke at length about home birth and I was so impressed with her professionalism and how she walked me through the whole process. She explained any potential scenarios which could arise during a home birth and how she would handle those scenarios to ensure the best possible outcome for my family and me. At each visit with her, my family and I felt so loved and taken care of. Her calm, nurturing presence was so appreciated during my labor and birth and I felt safe in her care. I truly could not have imagined a more beautiful home birth experience and would highly recommend Rosie to anyone considering this path for their family. She is a fantastic midwife and was an absolute pleasure to work with!"
Birth of Jolene Amber
"I cannot speak more highly of Rosie and Emma! Rosie truly and sincerely built a relationship with me through our prenatal visits. She was always there via text or call when I needed her or had questions, and she was very attentive to what was important to me in achieving the home birth I wanted. There was never a moment that my baby and I didn't feel truly cared for or loved, prenatally and postnatally. When it came time for my birth, Rosie and Emma had got to my house so quickly, and immediately went into action to help set up the pool and take care of all the preparation. I had nothing to worry about. Even more incredibly is that after the birth, everything was cleaned up and put away as if nothing even happened! During the hours after the birth, Rosie and Emma took their time with myself and the baby. I never felt rushed or like they were in a hurry to leave, which was incredibly comforting. The only bad thing about this experience is that I no longer get to see them for monthly visits, and I miss them terribly. Rosie and Emma were both essential to my postnatal recovery as I went through the highs and lows of hormone changes and the challenges of breastfeeding. The best part is that Dad (who was skeptical on having a midwife/doula/homebirth) was so incredibly impressed with Rosie and Emma and how amazing the entire experience was... he loves to brag about our home birth to his friends and family any chance he gets! It was MORE than worth the price we paid, and I can't wait to do it again. My only regret is that I did not have Rosie and Emma for my first two births. "
"I have nothing but amazing things to say about Circle of Life. From the time I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted a more natural birth, and home birth sounded like the best option. We emailed with a few other midwives but only met in person with Rosie, and we immediately knew this was the way to go! She has helped me with both my daughter's births, and I am so excited for her to be there for my third delivery. The calm confidence Rosie exudes was exactly what I needed during labor and delivery- I know I wouldn’t have been able to get through without her. She is knowledgeable, put my mind at ease with so many things, and encouraged me to feel confident in my ability to birth. She is the best!"
