Hi, I'm Robin

Hi there! I'm Robin. I am about to celebrate my 44th birthday next month. I am a spring baby. An Aries on the cusp. I am an avid coffee drinker and take it with cream only. I prefer a flavored coffee like salted caramel or french vanilla. Grabbing coffee is my favorite way to hang out with friends and exchange conversation. At home I like to drink out of any one of my favorite mugs from my collection. Most of my mugs were made by potters that I met here on Instagram. I like b


I am grateful for this new career and for the clients who hired me to support them through their birth and postpartum journeys this past year.

I am grateful to have the ability to support my clients and my own family through this work. I am grateful for the time spent within the homes of families to care for them during this sacred postpartum time. #

Hi! I'm Robin!

Time to share a little bit about myself. Here are 6 Quick Facts About Me! 1. I love thrifting and in my travels over the years, I have built up quick a collection of crocheted blankets that I have stacked up in my living room and sunroom. They're great for movie nights, forts, and impromptu outdoor picnics in the backyard. I love me so granny squares and funky colored yarn. 2. My first birthday cake was a Snoopy cake and I have loved that beagle ever since. I have BIG lo

One step at a time...

Tackling it one day at a time. Minute by minute. Hour by hour. One feeding at a time. Advice for new parents. It is overwhelming bringing a new baby home after experiencing childbirth and postpartum recovery. During my most recent daytime shift with a family, I left behind a little outline of notes for them. It was a short visit but within those three hours I helped cover a feeding, supported the parents as they slept and showered, organized baby items in the nursery, and g

Prepping Bottle Supplies

Figuring out what kind of bottles your baby will take to is a bit of trial and error. There are many brands and styles to choose from. I have only used @drbrowns with my babies. I am learning about other bottle brands as I work with clients. At a recent postpartum visit, I helped the family unpack the bottles and feeding supplies that they received off of their baby registry. I took the time to disassemble and clean their bottles so we could set up a bottle/feeding stati


I am grateful for the outdoors and taking time to get outside with my kids to break up the day. I am grateful for the joys of exploring. I am grateful for the mind of a child seeing beauty in the world around them. I am grateful for the bundled up faces in hoodies and beanies. I am grateful for the joy of finding a frozen pond in the woods. I am grateful for the memories made and the excitement to go outside and explore again. I am grateful for our week off with my kids to re

Three Souls Chose Me

The reason that I do the work that I do is because of these three kiddos right here. These three souls each came into our lives with divine timing. Becoming a mother to my first son happened during a time that I was seeking purpose and feeling the desire and the urge to care for a child of my own. I have been a caretaker for children for most of my teens and my twenties as a babysitter, nanny, and teacher. I was always caring for other people's children and was feeling the

Encouragement With Bottle Feeding

Feed the baby. Wash the bottles. Dry the bottles. Portion out the formula. Mix the bottles. Feed the baby. Repeat. I have a client who is a nurse and she has an excellent system in place for her baby’s bottle preparation. I’ll post more on the details at another time but wanted to share a snapshot of her setup. The cycle of feedings can feel never ending. Finding ways to make it easier by having a system in place will help! Breastfeeding? Have a similar setup with the item

Benefits of Hiring a Postpartum Doula

The reasons for hiring a doula for postpartum care are hugely beneficial. Having an extra set of hands to help with household chores, tend to baby, and prepare meals during the day is incentive to hire someone for daytime coverage. Overnight coverage is my favorite option because it gives both parents the opportunity to get much needed sleep. Whether your baby is breastfed or bottle fed, having a doula assist at night will give new parents the restorative sleep they need to
