Read the story included in Robin's nomination form:

"Robin has been working diligently for the last 2+ years on a perinatal loss community burial program to support those patients who have had a miscarriage at less than 20 weeks. She has reached out to other organizations for their program details and protocols. She has attended conferences and has talked with many professionals who have knowledge about these programs nationwide. She has, on her own, talked with several local funeral homes and found a partner with Kern’s Funeral Home in Mount Vernon and Mount Vernon Cemetery. Robin is implementing a practice of respectful disposition and providing transparent answers to patients. Robin is currently working with a non-profit group to secure funding for this program. Robin’s passion for these women and their families is brilliant. She has shared her vision with the Family Birth Center staff and with the providers as well and has their support. It is nurses like Robin that bring their gifts to the women of our community in order to help them heal. This “birth” should be celebrated and Robin is making sure that this organization will do just that!"
