Welcome! I’m Roberta Kiehle, but most people call me Bert. I live in western NY in LeRoy. I am excited to offer my services of Birth & Postpartum Doula, and Lactation Counseling to the community and beyond! I am a grounded, nurturing person that loves to help others get closer to their potential. Whether that is helping others overcome an obstacle, shift perspective, or creating a satisfying birth experience!
When I’m not being a birth nerd, you can find me taking walks in nature, or reading some kind of nonfiction, likely on spirituality or wellness. I love traveling, catching a concert, or grabbing a tasty drink at a cafe. I also spend a lot of my time preparing plant based meals and making herbal infusions and tonics.
I have had birth-work in my heart since I was a little girl. Once I learned what a doula was, I knew this was my ultimate calling! I believe that pregnant and birthing people are the most sacred and precious members of our society, and am honored to be invited to join families in their process. As a birth doula, my services can be provided in a 1 hr radius of my home location. The closest hospitals I serve are in the Rochester area, Canandaigua, Batavia, and Dansville. I can also provide support at your home-birth. I have been Certified through DONA International.
