People often ask me why I do what I do. I think it is so important for people to understand the passion I have for helping people be the best parents they can be and to get educated about the process. Parenting is truly a privilege. This episode I decided to open up a little about my past to help you understand a little more about where this passion comes from. You were all so supportive when I was honest about my struggles with fertility, so I wanted to be honest with you about my relationship with my own mom as well. The thing is, as parents we help to shape our children. Of course, there are many other things that go into who they become, but parents have a lot to do with it. This honor should be taken so seriously, and I think it’s at the core of what I do.
First off, I'm not a baby lover so was a bit late coming to watch this show. I was so charmed by Rosie, and am now hooked. Such a relief to watch someone so naturally nice on Bravo. My question is...she has one of the most unique voices, why change it? Isn't a lesson that should be taught is that what we perceive as our imperfections, is what makes us unique?
Rosie, you melt my heart. I cried through the entire episode and believe that by sharing your journey, you will help someone else. What would Rosie the adult say to Rosie the child about your mom? It sounds like she did not have the capacity or character to be a parent and you paid the price. Love the show and your ADORABLE husband!!
Just saw the episode where you get counseling and speech therapy, then give birth.
You are a huge inspiration and incredibly brave. Your mother really missed out loving someone as awesome as you. That's it :)
Rosie, your finale episode made me cry... to see that side of you so scared wow I couldnt believe it , who would of known, that here you are assisting ladies that have issues with their preganancy and you had some things that needed to be addressed as well! But I am so glad you got the assistance you needed, its ok to be scared or weak as long as we learn from the experience and we move on, and you have! I am so hapy that BravoTv actually has another type of show (like yours) and not all the Housewives drama, I am sick of it! A show like yours is what this station needed... not only are you assisting people in need but you are working to get ahead in life with your business and your family which is commendable, never loose touch with where you came from and simple beginnings! Its so refreshing that you have made yourself and your name what it is today, it is enlightening and inspiring gives me hope to contnue with my entrepreneur dreams. Blessyou and your loving kids and fantastic husband family! Cant wait to see you next season !
Rosie, I adore you and your show, you are delightful and I love what you do for folks. What a good business to get into and you are the perfect person to do it. Kudos, I dvr you every week
Wow, what a great episode! I just found out I'm pregnant with my second, and like you I have huge issues with my mother and have been terrified I'm going to find out I'm having a girl. What the therapist said made a ton of sense and what you said at the end really touched my heart. I will remember that and carry it with me, especially on the days where I may have doubt.
Thank you for letting us in on your personal journey - you've helped me see this through a whole new lens. Best of luck to you!
Congrats Rosie, on many levels. The only thing you should take from your relationship with your mother is a lesson on how NOT to do it. Sometimes life works in mysterious ways. Enjoy that beautiful baby girl and nourish her brothers on how to treat a lady, as your husband does with you. What a fantastic treat to have a little girl so they can learn that aspect!
Rosie i just finished watching your season finale and i was in tears of joy. the birth of a baby is so wonderful! :) congrats.
btw,i think youre probably one of the most brilliant people in the world to come up with this business!
RE: Your mom You said it exactly, "She doesn't know how to show love." Sometimes, natural instinct doesn't trigger. It is also hard to reconcile how much you still love your mom, while wondering why she didn't show you love. It does make sense to just accept that you didn't get what you needed from this person that you love nonetheless. It is a limitation on her part--her deficit skill that has nothing to do with anything about you. You definitely are in repair and not repeat mode.
You are so real...even on reality TV...go figure. You are sweet, funny, and so entertaining. Well, you have very entertaining clients too. You're reactions- facial expressions, witty comments- are so authentic and humorous. I wish you the best with your new little one- she's beautiful and I'd love to meet you want day. I'm pregnant...but not in heels. @ Rosy Pope
