Smashing Stereotypes to Maximize Potential

Robyn Stein DeLuca, Ph.D.

Speaker. Author. Coach.

Robyn Stein DeLuca, Ph.D. grew up at a time when women's opportunities were expanding at an amazing rate. She wants women to continue to thrive in spite of gender politics and stereotypes that work to keep women from achieving their full potential.

Her provocative book, The Hormone Myth: How Gender Politics, Junk Science, and Lies About PMS Keep Women Down, was released on August 1, 2017

Her 2014 TEDx talk "The Good News About PMS" has been viewed globally more than a million times and has been translated into twenty-two languages.

Dr. DeLuca is a health psychologist and the founder and CEO of DeLuca Insight, providing speeches, workshops, and private coaching about resisting stereotypes and realizing individual potential. Robyn has a strong background in how women cope with pregnancy and childbirth. Her research focuses on pregnancy, childbirth satisfaction, and postpartum adjustment. After fifteen years on the faculty at Stony Brook University, she decided to apply her expertise to supporting the transitions of women and couples to new parenthood.

She completed the NYU Advanced Diploma in Coaching, and is certified to teach the Bringing Baby Home® seminar, an evidence-based program proven to improve and protect the relationships of new parents. She is also the mother of two daughters and knows what it is to suffer through postpartum depression. She knows that if you feel lost and overwhelmed, there is always hope and a way forward. Robyn lives in Manhattan and loves to tuck into a good book on the couch, but also begrudgingly takes the occasional Zumba class.


Whether you are a millennial, corporate climber, new mom, or menopausal wise woman, Robyn helps women reject limiting cultural myths and shows them how to reclaim their personal and professional power.
