Robyn Hooper is a Doulas of North America (DONA) certified birth doula (labour support) professional providing support from prenatal to postpartum period to mothers and their birth partners. Robyn completed DONA certified training with Doula Essentials. She has also completed additional courses and training in breastfeeding, advanced comfort measures,’When Survivors Give Birth’, infant and pregnancy loss support, childbirth education, and prenatal classes. Robyn moved to Revelstoke for the great community, the outdoors, and environmental work. She is passionate about working with mothers and their birth partners to support them through the ‘journey’ of labour and birth – however that looks for each family/individual.
As a birth doula, Robyn is a trained professional who provides physical and emotional comfort, as well as support to a birthing person and their partner/family prenatally, during birth, and briefly post-partum. For example, during labour, Robyn helps to: create a comfortable atmosphere, provides physical support through the use of trained hands-on techniques, uses relaxation and comfort measures specific to the mother and family, guides you through different labour positions, encourages partner participation, listens to any fears, and support is constant and 24/7. As a doula, Robyn will listen to your fears, concerns, and preferences, as well as offer reliable informational resources and referrals. Robyn offers postpartum support, such as listening to and reviewing birth experiences, and provides additional resources and referrals. Please contact Robyn for a free consultation and rates, and note that cost-free/reduced rates are available for those in need of financial assistance.
