Meet the Midwife

Touch of Osun (pronounced oshun), was founded by Angelina Ruffin-Alexander, Certified Nurse Midwife in 2016.

Angelina entered into healthcare in 1995 as a patient care technician and held various jobs as medical assistant, phlebotomist, medical assistant instructor, community educator for Planned Parenthood. It was then she decided that she needed more and returned to school to receive an associate degree in nursing in 2007. Upon graduation, she worked in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. Through her time there, she still desired more. She would say, “I want to try to help stop the train before it crashes.”

This lead her to Emory University in 2010, where she pursued a Masters of Science dual degree in Nursing specializing in Nurse-Midwifery and Family Nurse Practitioner. She decided that she wanted to be able to treat the family, not just the belly. She believes in a community health and well-being. During this time, she served as a representative for the Emory Graduate Nursing Counsel. She was a voice for graduate nursing students and helped plan extracurricular service learning for students. She’s participated in the Lillian Carter Center global health initiative in Eleuthera, Bahamas wear she participated in education and health screens. Locally, she continues to work with homeless women and children in Atlanta.

Angelina has practiced as a Certified Nurse Midwife in Georgia since 2014.  She started her career in the hospital setting doing natural water births.  She started a solo home birth practice in 2016 where she continues to serve women in Georgia in an out of hospital setting.  She also serves as the Vice President of the Georgia chapter of American College of Nurse-Midwives.

She’s inspired to empower women in pregnancy, labor, birth, and parenting while offering a memorable prenatal care, birth experience, and family care in the home environment. As a family nurse practitioner, she believes that the family is a unit of health, not just one aspect of an individual.

I have been totally pleased, confident and secure through my whole pregnancy with Angelina as my midwife.

They were right she is knowledgeable, skilled, clearly loves what she does and her judgement calls are on point. I could go on but for mommies wanting a good experience I would definitely recommend Touch Of Osun Midwifery Services!

  17. Hello! I am coming up on my 12 week appt June 3. My current OBGYN is through Emory Hospital, but I know for certain I want to have a water birth. Unfortunately, Emory does not provide water birth services. I’d love to book a consultation with you as I’ve seen that you delivered a few babies for a few people I know! Before booking, I wanted to inquire about whether I’d be able to maintain my OBGYN for regular check up appts and have you as my midwife to actually deliver the baby? This is my 1st go around so I am not sure about how that relationship would work between a doctor and midwife for medical record purposes. Additionally, do you work with Anthem insurance for coverage or are your fees out of pocket costs only? Thank you for your time!

    1. Fees are out of pocket. You can choose to stay with your provider or not.
