Bio:
Hello! I am Robin Baker, owner of Birth Blessings Photography & Childbirth Services in Temecula. I have been serving families in Riverside and San Diego counties since 2010. I am a mother of 4 and a professional birth photographer, doula, and placenta encapsulation specialist and mentor. I am a care giver at heart and love to care for my family, friends, and clients with holistic natural remedies. I love DIY projects, arts & crafts, athletics, music, breastfeeding, and laughter. I like to be inspired & motivated. I strive to ‘pay it forward’ and ‘pass it on!’ My personal birth experiences include adoption, induction, stillbirth, epidurals, natural hospital births, and home water birth. These varied personal experiences drive my compassion and empathy.
My passion is all things birth and babies. I am a birth professional providing comprehensive services to support the entire journey from prenatal, to birth and beyond. I believe in creating deep connections, not only in my personal life but also in my business. I customize my
doula care, placenta encapsulation, and professional photography products to fit each individual client and their needs. My slogan is “doulas are for dads!” I honor the birth space with respect, privacy, and a beautiful, lasting memory through photographs. It is my goal to support all my clients with a caring heart, bring the birthing family closer together, preserve satisfaction through empowerment, and make their birth and postpartum experience as positive as possible.
This is not just my business, it is my way of life! I love being a doula and having doulas & other birth professionals as my best friends. Community, peer relations, and mentorship are important to my business model. I believe in supporting small businesses, local businesses, and newly trained birth professionals. I offer mentoring for doulas, birth photographers and anyone interested in placenta encapsulation. I enjoy going to monthly birth professional meetings and attend as many as my schedule allows. I also believe in life long learning and attend continuing education workshops regularly.
If you are just thinking about starting a family, already pregnant, or a newly growing family I would love to chat with you. Whatever stage you are along your parenting journey, is a good time to contact me. I look forward to serving you in any way I can - even if it is just passing along a referral. Blessings!
