Rose Otter, Lactation Consultant and Postpartum Doula
Rose Otter is a trained Postpartum and (former) Birth Doula, Infant Massage Instructor and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in Portland, Oregon. Rose's passion for supporting women in the childbearing years started at age two when she held her mother’s hand during the home birth of her brother. Her passion was fostered in her small-town upbringing, where the entire community came together to support and help new families during this precious time. Growing up in this environment is what Rose believes all families deserve and what she hopes to bring to each family.
Rose has spent time traveling in South and Central America, where she volunteered in orphanages and suppored pregnant and postpartum moms. Before founding Bridgetown Baby, Rose worked at Wise Women Care Associates in Ashland and at Alma Birth Center in Portland.
Rose also works as a Lactation Consultant with Natural Latch Lactation. She has a degree in Spanish and International Studies from University of Oregon. She currently volunteers as a board member for OWLA, Oregon Washington Lactation Association. In her free time, Rose enjoys rollerblading, knitting, spending time with family and friends, and snuggling sweet babies.
