The ‘magic’ Robyn brings to each birth is herself. Her wisdom, her experience, and her unflinching commitment to each and every woman having the birth experience they desire.
Robyn Pool got hooked on the concept of home birth early. At 13 she became close with a family whose six children were delivered at home with midwives. The staggering images of these births, captured in black and white, were more real, raw and captivating than anything she had ever seen.
These images stayed with her and informed her own birth choices. After delivering her own children with midwives, she finally acknowledged midwifery as her ultimate calling and started the long and demanding process of becoming a midwife.
Robyn obtained her degree in midwifery from the National College of Midwifery in Taos, New Mexico and became a California Licensed Midwife (LM) and Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). Robyn is a trained and certified Childbirth Educator, Doula, and is certified in CPR, Neonatal Resuscitation, and Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO).
Immediately following her licensure, Robyn opened ‘PUSH’, a home and birth center practice providing well-woman care and midwifery services to women and families in the greater Conejo Valley, Simi Valley, Ventura County and Los Angeles areas.
The new birth center opened its doors in May 2014. As the first birth center in the Conejo Valley, it provides a highly anticipated and much needed alternative to hospital birth.
By all accounts, Robyn Pool is a live wire… in the best possible way. Her energy and passion are electric and contagious, literally. She carries limitless dedication and the power of every birth she has attended (close to 500 at the writing of this bio!) into every single visit with clients and potential clients.
From the moment you meet her - it is clear that her style of providing the best in birth support services is truly unmatched by any of her contemporaries. It is real, frank, and honest. It isn’t sage smudges and crystals - although she can get with that too.
