Clair, Postpartum Doula& Newborn Care Specialist in Alexandria, VA
As the fourth of thirteen children, Clair has became very accustomed to Midwives, birth assistants, and Doulas being frequent and most beloved visitors in her childhood home in Front Royal, VA. Because of this, it was in her adolescence that she was first drawn to the beauty of the process of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum support.
While her friends said they would grow up to become doctors, lawyers, etc, Clair’s greatest desire has always been to help women as they become mothers, and to become one herself. With great passion for supporting families, Clair began attending her friends’ births as a Labor Support Doula and recently added Postpartum Doula to her skill set.
On the rare occasion that she has free time, Clair spends it traveling, reading, hosting dinner parties (she used to be a professional cook), singing at open mic nights, and country two-stepping. Clair also runs a book publishing company in Washington, D.C., but also spends as much time possible joyfully serving families as a Newborn Care Specialist.
