A Happy Family
starts with a happy mom.
Planning a natural birth and looking for classes to prepare? Need recommendations for a great doula? Ask local moms.
Need help adjusting to life with a newborn? Have breastfeeding questions? Reach out to your circle of support.
Best foods to eat during pregnancy? Favorite area midwives or OB's? Ask in the circle and get input from your community.
The Livingston County Birth Circle is a free, safe, nonjudgmental forum to share experiences, ask questions, connect with members of the local birth community, or just to listen and be a part of the experience. Facilitated by Certified Childbirth Educator, Certified Health Coach and mom of four, Jenn D'Jamoos, CCCE.. We are working toward the goal of empowering women to take control of their births, to provide them with caring support, sound guidance, and evidence-based information, and to create a safe place for encouragement, healing and connection.
This group is for women who are planning a pregnancy, are currently pregnant, have recently given birth or are experienced moms. We all benefit from connecting through our birth wishes and experiences. Our goal is to form a tight-knit community of women who support each other through the life-giving and life-changing rite of passage we call childbirth.
The 2017 schedule can be found here. We usually plan a topic for each meeting and our discussion centers on that topic, but our fundamental purpose is always to serve the needs of the members. The first hour of the meeting centers on the topic and the second hour is reserved to discuss birth stories, birth wishes or any other birth-related topic that comes up naturally. Please join our Facebook group to participate in online discussions, too!
