Meet Robin Elise Weiss, Doula Trainer
I enjoy sharing my passion for normal birth. My goal is to use my knowledge and experience to teach and mentor in a fun and meaningful way. I would love to have you join me in my next class.

Becoming a doula shouldn't be difficult. I can help.
Why I do what I do...
The first birth I attended—by accident—shocked me. I wasn’t there as a doula. But so many things were happening, and the mother had no idea what was going on. I didn’t know anything about birth, but I knew it wasn't supposed to be like this.
Robin's Background & Training
Supporting birthing families since 1988
My training comes from a variety of sources both in the classroom and the labor room. This has helped me be a really amazing doula trainer as I can bring the work I do as a doula (Yes, I'm still practicing!) to the work I do as a doula trainer.
I've also spent time learning a lot about policy and how policies and systems play into birth today. This insight has allowed me to have conversations with hospitals and others that were not possible before. I think it makes a great addition to the hands-on work I do with families.
