About Doula EAC

 Doula EAC - DMV premier Doula service

Erin has always loved the birth experience and has spent years supporting her friends during their childbirth experience. A few years ago, she decided to leave teaching Kindergarten and focus on childbirth education and supporting families transitioning into parenthood.

She has attended trainings with DONA, Mamatoto Village, Spinning Babies, Birth-Ready Method, Divine Birth Wisdom-Grandma's Hands Herbalist Course, and several other workshops and courses. 

What's most important to Erin in this work is creating an environment in birth that is nurturing, educated and smells amazing. Erin has always believed that "Every Body needs a Doula," and deserves to be pampered into motherhood while learning about the different options and choices that are available to them wherever they choose to give birth.

By far the best decision I could've made during my pregnancy was hiring Erin as my doula. 

My partner & I were first time parents and expecting a baby very unexpectedly. We had no idea what we were doing, I knew nothing about pregnancy or labor. I was overwhelmed with everything and put my partner in charge of finding a doula to help support us through our transition to parenthood. 

Erin was there anytime we needed her, gave us so much helpful information before baby came, and was a vital & crucial part of my labor, if not my best cheerleader and hands-on helper. She talked me through everything and educated me immensely and encouraged me to feel confident is such a high-stress situation. She has also supported us mentally & emotionally since baby's birth and answered any questions we've had as baby has grown and developed. 

I most definitely will be requesting Erin for the next baby!

Erin is an INCREDIBLE gem of a doula.

From the moment my husband and I met her, we knew instantly that she was the one. And we were right! First of all, her passion and positive energy are contagious. We accomplished SO MUCH during our first visit. She patiently guided me through various poses to ease discomfort and prepare me for labor, all while getting to know me. By the end of the visit, she had me completely figured out. In my stubborn moments, Erin always had the magic words to get me unstuck. Our dynamic was as though we were old friends. My birth experience was a 3-day induction with lots of highs and lows. Erin was there for ALL of it and kept the same energy throughout. When I felt lazy and wouldn't get out of the bed, she was the birth whisperer. I laugh when I remember how she "tricked" me into dancing and walking to bring on labor and how much I ended up enjoying it. Erin also wisely guided us through the medical team's recommendations and helped us make informed choices. On day 3, she told me we could get the baby out in a few hours if I did what she said, and IT HAPPENED! I had some unforeseen complications after, and she stayed with my husband and baby until I was out of the OR and stabilized. She even met us at home some weeks after to check on me, debrief, and celebrate. Erin is kind, patient, and genuinely passionate about birth.

She has a PERMANENT place in my heart and invitation to the cookout.

Where do I begin?

When I look back at my pregnancy it will always make my heart warm, and a great big portion of that is because of Erin. From our very first virtual meeting, all the way to post-partum, Erin has showed up fully providing her knowledge and expertise. She has made me feel comfortable to confide in her whenever it was needed; I trusted her expert opinion, and she made me feel supported.

I definitely felt spoiled from the care she provided while I went through labor (she showed up fully equipped) with the personally crafted body wash and body oil. I literally can't imagine what my pregnancy would've been without like without her.

As a doula myself, I can say with no hesitation that Erin is a top-notch Doula. I'm forever grateful for her for making my first pregnancy. If you haven't caught on by now, I highly recommend her services.

I am currently home with a healthy and happy baby. I am excited for motherhood and couldn't have been in the positive mindset I'm in if it weren't for the help, support and amazing guidance of Doula, Erin Clark.

This is my first child, so I was very anxious. I had no idea what I was getting into.  A friend of mine that hired Erin previously told me what a doula was and how much it helped her. I decided to call Erin and I am ecstatic that I did. Not only was she personable and attentive, but she was also very patient and comforting with my high anxiety. She was proactive from the very beginning! I was sent information from her on a regular basis on how to prepare myself and my baby for a successful delivery. She was a great teacher in regard to explaining all my options I had for delivery.

Erin was one of the most beneficial pieces to both my pregnancy and birth. Nothing about my experience was textbook but I felt strong and prepared for the entire experience based on the knowledge that Erin provided me with. I am not an easy person to coach or manage, however Erin made sure to adjust her style to provide me with the coaching I needed. Honestly, had I not had Erin, I would have been absolutely fearful for my birth and its unexpected turns, but with her knowledge and having her by my side I felt like I would be successful no matter what my unborn child or the hospital brought. I would (and have) recommended Erin to others for their pregnancy and birth.

Having a doula was beneficial but having Erin as my doula was a blessing. 

Maegan Baron


Erin was born to be a Doula.

She is enthusiastic and passionate about her work. She is super easy to get along with, fun and down to earth. From the start she was supportive of my husband, and I birth plan. She lent a lot of encouragement and knowledge as my pregnancy progressed and when the days of waiting for baby's arrival felt real long! She helped me keep my focus and thinking positive. When labor began, Erin was magical. She helped my labor pains decrease by more than half with her use of massage and pressure techniques. My husband and I both agree we could not/don't want to imagine having a baby without her by our side. We truly appreciate all she did for us. And her education, encouragement, support and connections she brought even after our baby was born.

If you're thinking about getting a doula, DO ITTTTT! And choose Erin! You won't regret it. 

Kunti Salazar


Erin is a well-prepared, effective and caring doula.

Her understanding of our birth plan and specific concerns made her indispensable during our VBAC labor and delivery. As a VBAC client, she was incredibly supportive and utilized several methods and tools as comfort measures and provided helpful advice in preparation for labor. My partner learned a lot from her during the process and found her assistance to be indispensable. With her support, we successfully had a vaginal birth and healthy baby. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

If you are looking for a thoughtful doula who is well-informed with resources and also flexible, Erin is a perfect fit. Our midwife team at our hospital even remarked about how fantastic Erin was in providing us with support during nearly 36 hours of labor.



We worked with Erin for the birth of our first child, born September 2021.

Since first meeting Erin on a virtual interview, I knew she was the perfect match for us. My partner loves her and so do I.

She was incredibly supportive during the pregnancy: answered all texts, calls, and reached out. She provided amazing resources and made me feel comfortable through the entire journey. I literally don't know how I would have given birth without her. She was an awesome support for me and for my partner. She helped me through contractions and was there for me from the first signs of contractions until after baby was born. Erin used massage techniques, oils, and scents to make labor much more comfortable.

Erin is funny, comforting, supportive, and knowledgeable. She connected us with her friend who does placenta encapsulation: the pills have made me feel great the past two weeks as a new mom. The best decision I've made as a new mom was hiring Erin. We now think of Erin as a part of our family and if I could do anything over, it would be to hire her earlier!!
