My name is Claudia Booker. I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), licensed in Virginia and Maryland, and have served as a BirthCare Birth Assistant for 10 years. I am a certified doula, childbirth educator and breastfeeding peer counselor, with supplemental trainings in Spinning Babies, rebozo, homeopathy and herbalogy. I studied birth assisting and midwifery at the Farm with Ina May Gaskin and the Farm midwives and advanced midwifery skills with Ibu Robin Lim in Bali. I remain a practicing attorney in Washington DC. My daughter is a pre-school teacher at National Presbyterian Pre-School.
I provide placenta encapsulation and custom-made herbal sitz baths; and I can bring a birthing stool and TENS machine to births.
