Robbins Doula

Robbins Doulas owner Kathleen Robbins offers unbiased support to every St. Louis family she serves, be it educational, emotional, or practical. Her work with a family is entirely individualized and based on your needs and goals. Every baby, mother, and birth is unique – and so should your care! 

While Kathleen doesn’t offer birth doula services, she does offer private baby prep sessions that can cover a variety of subjects to help you prepare for your new infant, including breastfeeding, infant care, house prep, postpartum planning, and more! These services can either be in-person or virtually – so you don’t have to be a St. Louis local to hire her! Once your baby is born, Kathleen is able to help as a postpartum doula, caring for you, your baby, and your home to help alleviate the stressors of this major life transition, allowing you to focus on your new baby and your healing body. She is also a certified lactation consultant should you need breastfeeding support!
