About Us

The Livingston County Birth Circle is a 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. We are working toward the goal of empowering women to take control of their birth experiences, to provide them with caring support, sound guidance, and evidence-based information, and to create a safe place for encouragement, healing and connection.

Our Story

LCBC was founded in 2013 by Jenn D'Jamoos, a childbirth educator and mom of four living in Brighton, Michigan.  Now it it's fifth year, we have grown to more than 600 members in our Facebook group and have hosted monthly meetings covering a variety of topics surrounding motherhood and parenting.  Our meetings have featured guest speakers such as Cynthia Gabriel, author of "Natural Hospital Birth" and have served the needs of many grateful moms throughout their pregnancy, birth and mothering journeys.  LCBC has participated in community events such as the Livingston County Community Baby Shower and The Big Latch On - Livingston.  We welcome you!

Meet the LCBC Board

The board for LCBC was formed in the fall of 2017 to help with the growing needs of our community.
