Robin Rabenschlag, LM, CPM - Multiple Blessings Childbirth Services
Robin Rabenschlag, LM, CPM - Multiple Blessings Childbirth Services is a midwife in practice since 2005 in San Antonio, Texas.
The birth of a child brings multiple blessings to a family and I am both honored and humbled to be a part of such a very special time in a family's lifetime together...
Aside from being a midwife, I am the mother of six beautiful children – five girls and one boy – ranging in age from 27 to 18. My youngest are identical twin girls. I am a grandmother ("Oma"), too! I am also an educator for a local college, mostly Anatomy and Physiology. All the students I come into contact with there are fascinated that I am a midwife. I enjoy taking that fascination and offering them the opportunity to learn about birth in a positive way. I have multiple degrees in the sciences, have attended nursing school and I completed my midwifery training with the Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program after beginning my midwifery education in Germany. I am also currently an instructor and clinical preceptor for the ATM Midwifery Training Program and an active member of the ATM Education Committee.
I knew at a very early age that I was destined to work with mothers and babies. I grew up being a caregiver. I was also very proactive in my mother's births, attending the earliest Lamaze classes and La Leche League meetings with her. At the young age of 19, I immigrated to Germany where I married and birthed my children. My very first day in that country, my mother-in-law picked up my hands and said to me: "Du hast die Haende einer Hebamme!" Translated, that means: "You have the hands of a midwife!" That was the spark I needed to know what I would want to do the rest of my life.
After the birth of my 2nd child in 1985, I began my studies in midwifery. I had the most wonderfully, sweet German midwife who participated in my own births and was my mentor. I was like a sponge – soaking up any information I could get from her and the other midwives at that clinic.
It's been an incredible journey to where I am today. Throughout the years after returning to Texas in 1994, I was one of the original doulas and doula trainer in San Antonio and I have worked in local hospitals in nursing, as a childbirth and breastfeeding educator and staff doula – all providing me with incredible experience. I have also worked in birth centers in San Antonio and thrive in that atmosphere. For many years, I have also focused my attention and knowledge on helping mothers of multiples and became nationally recognized for my work in multiple births. My business name Multiple Blessings originated from that work. Twin births have always been very dear to my heart and as a midwife, I offer mothers expecting this multiple blessing the opportunity to birth their babies naturally and safely with midwifery care.
As a firm believer in education and having the philosophy that training and learning never stop, it is my goal as a midwife and educator to help all families bring their children into this world in the safety and comfort of their own home because they have the knowledge to choose what is best for them. Over 400+ births later and working with well over 1000 families, I strive to be the best caregiver I can be. Birth is a blessed event and should be trusted just as we trust every breath we take. Allow me the humbling honor to help you bring your baby into the world.
