Next Savvy Birth Pro Workshop: Spring 2019
Hi, my name is Jenn D’Jamoos and I’m an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor! An Evidence Based Birth® Instructor is a birth professional specially trained in how to help families get evidence based care. I am one of only about 100 Evidence Based Birth® Instructors around the world!
I applied to become an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor because I believe that every birthing person deserves a positive, respectful and safe experience. Sadly this is not a reality for most women, but I’m proud to be joining forces with professionals and parents around the world to ensure that things change for the better!
If you want to be empowered with the latest evidence and to take control over your birth OR if you want to help your clients take control over their births, then keep reading to find out what I can offer you.
I am excited to bring Savvy Birth Pro Workshops to Southeast Michigan!
The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (3 contact hours) was developed
by Evidence Based Birth® to give you the skills you need to help
your clients attain the best possible chance at evidence based care
during pregnancy and labor.

Private Coaching for my Expecting Parents
If you hire me to be your childbirth educator, as an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor I will work with you one-on-one to increase your confidence about your upcoming birth. As a client of mine, your eyes will be opened and you’ll feel much more at ease, knowing that you DO have the ultimate power and say in your care!
See my classes page for upcoming classes that include access to Evidence Based Birth® services. You can also visit my Facebook page to learn more about the different types of private classes that I offer, or contact me to get details about customizing a class just for you and your partner.
I am a mother of 4 children and wife of 15 years to my amazing and supportive husband, Chris. I have been teaching childbirth education and attending births since 2010 and have loved every minute of it. I am certified through CAPPA and enjoy advocating for women and babies through education, activism and community outreach. I became an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor in 2015 and a Certified Health Coach in 2016 through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. In supporting many mothers during their postpartum period and helping them navigate the early months of parenthood, I have found great purpose and enjoyment.
They call me “Earth Mama Jenn” because of my crunchy ways. I like to eat ‘close to the earth,’ though I still enjoy a donut (or three) from time to time. We have a kitchen garden and backyard chickens, and prefer to shop at the local organic food co-op and health food stores. I relate my birth philosophy to my lifestyle choice in that I believe our bodies were created as nature intended and under normal circumstances need very little intervention to bring forth “fruit”.
My passion for birth came after a life-changing birth experience of my own with my third born. I felt called to share my passion with other parents-to-be. Over the years, I’ve learned that not everybody is going to have the same wishes that I had for my birth, but something we more than likely have in common is the desire for a positive birth experience. This means something different for every mother. My wish is to help you come away from your birth experience with gratitude and a sense of satisfaction knowing that you were supported and respected throughout your labor, birth and postpartum period.
I’d love to chat with you about your pregnancy and birth wishes. Please include your estimated due date in your comment so I can better understand your needs. Thanks!
