Stephanie Sibert is the owner and primary midwife at Rosebud Birthing Services and the Eastern Plains Easy Access Clinic. She lives with her two cats, Loki and Thor, and in her off-call time loves camping and kayaking, thunderstorms (but not together!), and spending time with friends and family.
Stephanie's training spanned 6 years of apprenticeship and over 170 births with one of the longest-standing midwives in Colorado Springs. She also received exposure and training from multiple other homebirth practices in the area, and also provided doula support for mothers birthing in the hospital setting. Stephanie's education included management of prenatal care, labor, handling of labor/birth emergencies, postpartum support, postpartum care complications and emergencies, newborn assessments/screenings, and interpretation of labwork.
Stephanie completed the North American Registry of Midwives Portfolio Evaluation Process (NARM PEP process) in December of 2016 and successfully passed the national examination in early 2017. She now joyfully attends births as a Colorado Registered Midwife (RM). Stephanie is the primary midwife for Rosebud Birthing Services and secondary midwife with A Mother's Choice Midwifery.
Her focuses include bringing accessible maternity care to the maternity deserts in rural Eastern Colorado and empowering birthworkers from disparaged and unreached populations to bring midwifery care to their own communities.
