Birth Business Mentoring

Being a childbirth educator or doula can sometimes be a lonely business. You might be one of only a few birth professionals in your area, or you might be the only one. This can provide you with few if any examples of how to run your business and even fewer mentors from which to choose. Robin has over twenty-five years of experience as a childbirth educator, doula, social media guru, and author, which has included many hundreds of mentees.

Having someone who is knowledgeable in your field can make all of the difference in the world when it comes to figuring out how to make your business profitable and personally rewarding. That’s part of why you don’t want generic business advice that you can find in many areas of the Internet and in business books.

Here are some of the sample topics that mentoring with Robin might include:

  • Help to identify your ideal client
  • Defining a social media strategy
  • Solutions for workflow problems
  • Business expansion ideas
  • Ideas on getting your birth book published
  • SMART goal setting
  • Mock interviewing
  • Birth business exercises to help you prioritize your planning
  • Basic social media inventory
  • What a doula does
  • Skill set of a doula
  • How to formalize your birth book ideas
  • Living a life on call
  • Dealing with backup doulas
  • Childcare on call
  • Other issues as desired or needed

We offer group mentoring through 100% Doula. This includes monthly business lessons, marketing lessons, worksheets/handouts, a private community to discuss all things business, and Facebook Live Q&A sessions. This affordable mentoring solution is a great option for birth professionals at every stage of their business.

Robin also offers private, online consultations from the comfort of your own home or office, with flexible scheduling. The beauty of the individualized nature of this consultation is that you can hone in one or two topics to get a quick jolt of energy to your business, you can choose to do an extensive reboot, you can start from the very beginning as you’re just getting starting or any number of self-designed options to consider. While there is no one right way to give birth, there is also no one right way to run your business. It is important that you understand what options are available from which you may choose so that you can fulfill your goals of having a successful birth business.
