Claire has been a host surrogate three times for two families.  She helped the first scottish couple  in 2010, and then birthed  their second son in 2013.  She has also worked with an English couple, giving birth to their son in January 2018.  Claire met both couples thorough Surrogacy UK – a non-profit who promote friendship first. She maintains a very good relationship with both families.  Clair has also donated her eggs to a couple, resulting in the birth of identical twin boys in September 2012.  Claire has her own two sons who are now 13 and 10.  Surrogacy is a lifelong passion of Claires, and she hopes to eventually specialise in fertility nursing.
