Jessica Jenkins

I truly cannot say enough good things about Robin. I am a first time mom who naturally, was afraid. She explained to me what was happening, when it was happening, she addressed all of my concerns, and opened my eyes up to things I had no idea were even possible for my labor. She helped me achieve the birth plan I desired and I can honestly say I dont think I could have made it through without her and my husband. She was an amazing coach for him as well. i plan to use a doula (hopefully Robin) for every birth.

Robin Weiss, was an extremely valuable resource to me and my husband before, during, and after labor. As someone who really needed a nudge in thinking critcially and not completely emotionally about the birth process, Robin was there to gently ask questions. This helped me come to make the best choices for my body and baby. In the end having Robin there was invaluable.

Robin Elise Weiss has been our doula for all three of our births. She has brought her extensive knowledge about birth, her experiences attending many, many, births and a compassion for the expecting family. Each of my births was unique and challenging and Robin helped my husband and I achieve our birth goals by supporting us through the pregnancy and birth process. I would recommend her to anyone.

Robin Weiss was my doula for the successful natural birth of my daughter 19 years ago. I have known Robin well both personally and professionally over the years and wholeheartedly recommend her.

Robin is exceedingly well-informed. With her innate curiosity and impressive memory, she has developed an almost encyclopedic understanding of the normal birth process and the potential medical outcomes and procedures. Her working knowledge and repertoire of skills have grown exponentially over the 24+ years as doula at births in a wide variety of settings. Her role as a doula trainer, pregnancy/childbirth educator, lactation counselor, author, internet guide and public health professional have further enhanced her childbirth-related experience.

When Robin commits to a birth client, she shares her wealth of knowledge, skills, and warmth generously. She brings to her initial meeting insightful birth planning tools and a creatively customized approach to meet the individual needs of the woman and her partner. Robin demonstrates an uncanny ability to focus her mental and physical energy on the client and her family for the duration of labor. Her many years of working as a doula at area hospitals enable her to seamlessly interface with the OB’s, midwives, and nurses to ensure a more satisfactory birth experience. When unexpected medical interventions prove necessary and informed decisions need to be made, Robin’s calm manner and knowledge of  procedures and conditions prove invaluable in supporting clients.

If you are fortunate to have Robin Weiss as your birth doula, you will learn a great deal more than you ever expected about pregnancy, labor, birth and the care of yourself and your baby. You will feel empowered by her compassion, calm voice, talented hands-on skills and creative solutions to the discomforts of labor. She will cheer you on and share your joy.
