“I love being able to help women embrace the physiological part of birth, and letting them know, they can do it.”
Abbey Rose started her career as a medical-surgical nurse. She never thought she would transfer to labor and delivery, but said she just had a calling.” After working in obstetrics as a nurse for nine years, Abbey wanted to do more.
“I wanted to be more involved with my patient’s care,” she said. “I wanted to give women a different option of care, and that’s why I pursued my master’s in midwifery.”
As a certified nurse midwife, Abbey empowers her patients to make their own health care decisions. She sees her visits with patients like a conversation between two friends.
“I love getting to know my patients,” she said. “I like to share with them different options and allow them to take ownership of their care.”
With her experience, Abbey enjoys labor and delivery the most. She will try different positions with patients to help them be comfortable and think outside of the box. In addition, she is certified as an International Board of Lactation Consultant, and can help with any breastfeeding needs.
Abbey and her husband have three daughters, which takes up most of their time. She enjoys spending time with her family, and is active in her church.
