You want to help people have a positive birth experience.

But you’re unsure of the next steps and need someone to show you exactly what and when to do it. Or maybe …

My name is Robin.

I understand how it feels not to know the next step in becoming a doula.

Having trained thousands of doulas and childbirth educators and attended over 1200 births in hospitals, birth centers, and home births – I’ve seen so many different ways that birth happens and what it takes to be the right doula at the right time.

In Their Words

I loved taking doula training that Robin taught. I never felt like it was too overwhelming everything was spot in and easily understandable. I felt completely capable when I took my first client just because she taught so well like everything was taught so well it felt like it was something I had been doing for a long time.

Robin is an incredible doula trainer. I learned so much during her training. She is fun, smart and works hard to teach for a variety of learning styles. Prior to taking Robin’s DONA doula online training, I trained with another doula organization. Robin’s was far superior. My favorite part of choosing Robin as my doula trainer though is the ongoing support and mentoring she offers after. It’s clear she loves this work, cares deeply for her students, and wants us all to be successful!!

The support that you receive after the training is beyond incredible. I would not be where I am without the community that she has created.

But What About ...

I have ongoing support after the training has ended. Many people who have taken a doula training do not even know the name of their trainer. With our training, I have an alumni community of many doulas who are available to help each other and bounce ideas off of.

Doula training is an investment in your future. I work to keep prices down and costs low while still delivering a high-quality course. Yes, it is an investment but I offer  payment plans.
