Oops! Our computer is taking a nap. Refreshing this page often wakes it up.
I’m passionate about supporting families as they walk through life’s transitions that come with birthing and parenting children. My passion for understanding these aspects of making families has drawn me to doula work, where I feel I can offer my interests, skills and heart to support parents. I enjoy teaching yoga; holding space for expectant and new mothers is a very personal form of gratitude and respect for them.
Robyn is AMAZING.She was personable, kind, and helpful. She really helped to put me and my husband at ease. I will be forever grateful for that. I highly recommend her and think she is fabulous. ~L. S.

Birth Doula: Birth Centers, Home & Hospital Births
Everybody is different, every Mama, partner, baby and birth respond to labor in a multitude of emotions, intensity levels, sounds, feelings and vibrations. It is my job to offer options; to elucidate for your family, throughout your labor and the birth of your baby, what your choices are in that moment.
As you & your baby begin to labor, I might:

  • Encourage & remind you how amazing you’re doing!
  • Suggest various positions for you to get as comfortable as possible
  • Show your partner how to massage your back
  • Offer my TENS unit for comfort & relaxation
  • Encourage you to experiment with hydro therapy
  • Answer questions regarding the physiology & hormonal biology of birth
  • Use my rebozo as you breathe through a labor surge
  • Help you stay hydrated
  • Talk you through visualizations to help quiet & focus your mind
  • Be present for you & your partner
  • Offer information, guidance & grounding support

Postpartum Doula:
I take postpartum care seriously in tending to BOTH members of the mother-baby dyad. Guiding you in newborn care is the norm for postpartum doula support, and I am also uniquely trained to care for mothers' healing postpartum.

  • Discussion of nutritional herbs & whole food sources to support your physical healing & breastfeeding experience


Pre & postnatal yoga consultations available "à la carte" or as a part of doula support packages:

  • Private instruction customized to your unique pregnancy experience & in preparation for birth
  • Yoga for pelvic floor restoration & in support of mother's healing post-birth

My approach

I find pregnancy and childbirth to be a compatible place for me to work one on one with laboring Moms to support women in mindfully accessing a place of comfort and ease via the breath. I’ve been a nanny and worked with children for over a decade, and my love for children’s naturally playful and curious spirits has lead me to working one on one with families and parents, in the foundations, roots and beginnings of these children’s lives.
