Robin loves all aspects of being a doula and supporting clients through pregnancy and preparing for labor. She has found a niche in prenatal and birth support with the addition of birth photography. It is an incredible honor to share her clients' birth story through photographs and document their first chapter of their child's life on earth.
She also enjoy supporting her clients when they are home with their baby for the first night postpartum. Several of her birth clients have hired her to stay overnight during those first days at home to help them get the sleep they need by caring for baby and helping set up the essential supplies to care for their newborn.
Since she was a young child, she has always felt the desire to care for others. Robin created Within Motherhood after answering the call to support women on their journey into motherhood.
Woman. Mother. Doula. Robin is a mother of three children and her life forever changed the moment she found out she was pregnant for the first time.
I'm Robin Dini
Robin is a huge fan of learning and improving upon her professional skills in order to offer the best support possible for her clients.
Through continuing education, Robin is enrolled in classes with Spinning Babies to expand her skills in labor and birth support. She is also learning to become a lactation counselor. Breastfeeding and supporting breastfeeding mothers is something she is very passionate about.
She was taught how to breastfeed by one of the best in the business, Irene Cullagh of Breastfeeding and Beyond, and she wants to offer that same life-changing support to clients seeking the skills to nurse their babies.
If you'd like to know more about any of Robin's services, please reach out. She would love to set up a time for a call or a zoom meeting to learn more about you and how she can be of help.
starting within motherhood
Where it all began
Another baby boy was born in the spring and we became parents of two boys under the age of two years old.
Five months postpartum, I was diagnosed with oral cancer and underwent two invasive surgeries and several hospitalizations.
At our son's first birthday party, we shared the news with a few close friends that we were expecting our second baby!
Our first child was born in September and my motherhood journey began!
On December 24, we found out we were pregnant with our first child.
Our third and final baby came earth side in the fall of 2015. A baby girl joined the family! It was after her birth that we knew our family was complete and that we were done having babies.
Turning 40, buying our first home, and wrapping up, what would soon be, my last season as a wedding photographer. The following year, would be the year that everything changed.
Within Motherhood, LLC is born!
I completed my training with Embodied Doula Training for Birth and Postpartum Doula Care in March. My first clients signed on in July for support with birth, including photography and postpartum care!
