Claudia has trained with Catherine in the SAPHIRE™ practice since 2003 and played a crucial role in the development of DreamBirth™. Co-founder of The Birth Studio™, the first center that offers Childbirth Education Classes centered around DreamBirth™, Claudia is a Childbirth Educator, a Birth Doula, an Alexander Technique Teacher and a Biodynamic CranioSacral Practitioner, as well as a certified practitioner of DreamBirth™. It was her experience with uterine cancer, however, that jumpstarted her into the creative and revelatory aspects of the work where she learned firsthand its true power; she was the grateful recipient of the healing it promoted.
She holds a Masters from NYU in Kinesiology and Dance, and has assisted in over 260 births (as of 2015). Claudia has seen a great increase in positive outcomes since incorporating DreamBirth™ both in her work as a doula and as an educator. Her respect and awe for the power of DreamBirth™ and the SAPHIRE™ technique on which it is based, is infinite, and continues to grow with each experience. She gives workshops, classes and private sessions both to professionals in the birth field and to anybody involved with any aspect of the birthing process, whether conception, pregnancy, birth, or mothering.
