Trained through the Mindful Birthing Foundation with Nancy Bardacke, Eluned Gold, Jennifer Averill-Moffitt and Jane Gerlach, Claire began teaching the 9-week series in the summer of 2017, adding Mind in Labor weekends in 2020.
Claire is committed to being of service to expectant and new parents through teaching these courses and in her work as a Labor Support and Postpartum Doula and administrator with Birthways Inc.
Reading Mindful Birthing in 2015 changed her life, setting her on this path which has rippled across all aspects of her life. Teaching continues to grounds and deepen her personal practice, which has included participating in the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, a daily practice and sitting retreats.
When not spending time with expect or new parents, Claire continues to explore ways to live a meaningful, compassionate life with her husband, her family and friends, and to contribute positively to the world.
