Rue Khosa, ARNP, IBCLC
Owner / Founder
The Perfect Push
Rue Khosa, is a board certified family nurse practitioner, board certified lactation consultant, childbirth educator, and the owner/founder of The Perfect Push, a lactation and parenting wellness clinic in downtown Redmond.
Rue was born and raised Zimbabwe, where family plays a critical role in supporting expectant and new parents. This type of communal caring, called “kugarira”, helps families prepare for a new baby both emotionally and physically and guides them through the often challenging newborn period. Rue created The Perfect Push to bring that experience to Seattle.
Rue began her women’s health career as a labor and delivery nurse over 10 years ago, at Washington Hospital Centre in DC. She received her graduate degree from Georgetown University, and her undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Rue is a Teaching Associate in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine and an Adjunct Clinical Faculty at Northwest University Buntain School of Nursing.
In July 2019, Rue was commissioned by the Mayor to the City of Redmond’s Human Services Commission. In addition, she has taken a more active role supporting the Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS), joining the board of directors.
In 2015, Rue established the Northwest FamilyFest – a fun, family-focused charity event that celebrates local businesses and community. The festival is in its fourth year, and will be hosted at the Downtown Redmond Park on Aug. 3, 2019.
When she is not working to redefine the childbirth and parenting experience, Rue is a wife and mother of two boys (6 and 3).
