Roshini Nambiar Schroeder
Roshini Nambiar Schroeder (or Rosh as her friends and family call her) is a DONA trained birth doula and owner of OmPowering Birthing Services, LLC. She started her birth doula journey when her sister decided to have a natural birthing experience and the experience of supporting a birth center birth with the closest person in her life, changed hers. After two degrees in environmental science and working in water quality for the State of Oklahoma, Rosh describes her journey as from Earth to Birth. She has witnessed the absolute beauty and empowerment in families learning how to bring their own babies into the world in the way that they want and having the support required to navigate the unpredictability and mystery of birth. She has benefited immensely and continues to be a firm believer in the midwifery model of care when having her own baby while being educated in evidence-based birthing.
Rosh went on to birth her own baby with the Thrive Mama Collective / Spirited Birth team during the start of COVID-19. She has since applied to midwifery school and is on the start of that journey while assisting birthing families with their own birthing journeys.
Rosh loves sustainability in every way and has a deep love for learning and connecting in every possible way.
