Building families one story at a time. Adding a new baby to your family is the start of a new chapter in your life. I have a passion for a natural approach to women’s health and offer educational material and counseling so each family can truly make an informed decision in their health care.
I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, so I have been trained in a range of alternative modalities including Craniosacral Therapy (CST), Iridology, Reflexology, and have had advanced training in nutrition.
My educational background includes a BS in Athletic Training from North Dakota State University, an Associate Degree in Nursing from Anoka-Ramsey Community College, Certified Professional Midwife from the Midwives College of Utah and am Certified Natural Health Professional from the Trinity School of Natural Health.
I have been married to Joe for 26 years and have 9 children. Seven of them were born in a hospital, one was born at home and one is adopted. We run a small farm, grow most of our own food and delight in sharing our home with our children and all of their Friends!
Robin Colburn has been living her passion for working with women throughout their life-span for the past 20 years. She became interested in midwifery when her youngest child was born at a free-standing birth center in Tallahassee, Florida, 28 year ago. Having had two hospital births prior to her birth center experience, she was really impacted by the difference between medicalized obstetric care and midwifery care in the out of hospital setting. Shortly after her birth center experience, Robin eagerly began working toward her midwifery degree.
Robin attended Southeast Community College in Nebraska for her LPN certificate and RN degree. She attended Nebraska Wesleyan University for her Bachelors of Nursing Degree and the Midwifery Institute of Philadelphia University for her Midwifery Certificate. Robin also has a Master’s Degree in Midwifery from Philadelphia University.
Robin feels strongly that women should be in control of their health care. She believes it is the midwife’s role to provide women and their families with the information they need so that they can make health care decisions that are best for them.
Robin is a widow with three adult children and four wonderful grandchildren who keep her busy and entertained when she is not being “with women”.
