About Me

Hello, and welcome to Little Miracles!
I am Rosemary Antunes, a wife of 32 years, homeschooling mother of 8 children, and grandmother of 5!
As an OB Nurse for 25 years, I have attended hundreds of births. As a Doula, I found an opportunity to fulfill a long-held dream: to facilitate the birthing process in the hospital setting, in as natural a way as possible, one woman at a time.
My experience as a Childbirth Educator includes not only the traditional classroom setting, but also private, in-home classes, customized to my clients' needs.
My choice of a blogspot, as opposed to a website, involves my desire to help my clients and others interact with me and with each other more easily.

Here's my story:
I am the third child of seven children.
Graduated from St.Francis Hospital School of Nursing, Hartford, Connecticut
                Valedictorian of the Class of 1980
 Worked in ICU, Extended Care Facilities, Hospitals in Connecticut
 Labor/Delivery/Newborn Nursery/Postpartum Nurse in hospitals, small and large in Connceticut            
                 and Virginia.
I then was a School Nurse for 5 years at Christendom College and 2 years at All Saints in Manassas.
My husband and I have had eleven pregnancies, eight of whom survived to delivery and beyond,
                 currently aged 15 yrs. to 30 yrs.
