Clinical Profile

Rose Watson-Ormond has been attending births in the Triangle area in various capacities and settings for over a decade. Rose earned her bachelor’s degree at UNC-Chapel Hill in International Studies and Spanish Language. Rose received her Master’s in Public Health from UNC in 2014 and her Masters in Nursing with a concentration in Midwifery and Women’s Health at Yale School of Nursing in 2019. Rose is a National Health Service Corps Scholar and worked at Federally Qualified Health Center on the Eastern Shore of Maryland after graduation and has been with the UNC Midwives since October 2022.

Rose practices midwifery in a way that prioritizes informed consent, trauma-informed care, and bodily autonomy. Rose believes every birthing person deserves a midwife and finds joy coming alongside folks as they journey through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum transition. She supports holistic preventative care, helping people make the right choices for themselves around menstrual health, contraception, birth choices and infant feeding.

Outside of midwifery, Rose spends time on her land in Saxapahaw, renovating her old farmhouse, cultivating food and medicinal herbs, and hanging out with her spouse and kiddos.
