YES, I WANT IN!
You're constantly struggling to find birth preparation resources that aligns with both your faith and your philosophy of birth. Nothing quite "fits."
You are equal parts excited and nervous to give birth outside the hospital. And you're not quite sure how you'll get to the point where you feel totally ready.
You suspect that pregnancy and birth are about more than "healthy baby, healthy mama" but you're not sure how to really utilize this opportunity fully.
You're sick of people telling you you're "brave" or saying, "I could never...." when you tell them about your home birth plans.
You've had a traumatic or disappointing birth in the past. Now you're nearly desperate for a redeeming, healing one this time around.
I hear you!
You can be in sisterhood with women who follow Jesus and see birth the way that you do!
You need to learn normal, physiological birth inside and out so that you can surrender to it and trust God in it.
You need to have a game plan for engaging your mind, body, spirit and heart in your birth journey.
You're ready to take full ownership of your birth, with all the weight and responsibility that comes with it.
You're just missing a few pieces of the puzzle and I'm here to give them to you!
EBJ Membership shepherds you through a transformational process of education and mentoring through pregnancy, birth and postpartum that deepens your faith, increases your confidence, and equips you for motherhood.
YES, I WANT IN!
And not just for birth, but for pregnancy and postpartum, too.
I am forever grateful how EBJ played such a beautiful role in building my confidence, helping me work through mental blocks that could have held me back in labor, and just how it truly is a huge reason why my home birth was amazing.
I could not recommend this experience enough, sweet mama. You are worth investing in.
I knew I wanted birth education this time around that was different and what you offer is exactly what God was leading me to. I not only needed the refresher course, but that I needed women in my corner. I needed community.
By diving into this education, I am taking extreme ownership and allowing God to lead me in ways I've never allowed him to before. It has led me to books to read, refreshers in many topics but also a lot of thought provoking topics that I now have been led to research and pray over.
I knew I didn’t want to go about approaching birth the traditional way, but I also knew no one who had done anything differently. I felt so inadequate in my knowledge of what my body was going through in pregnancy, and what to expect in birth, and just emotionally all over the place and feeling very isolated.
The community that EBJ has brought has helped me feel so much more mentally, emotionally and spiritually prepared for birth than I ever would have been alone.
My most cherished portion of EBJ has been the community of like-minded sisters and Brooke's sweet, gentle voice always uplifting, always encouraging! I was truly drawn to her soul, and she was the main reason I wished to continue with the membership.
Brooke puts her whole heart into her work and counsel and you cannot put a price on the guidance from a wise older sister!
EBJ is an investment in yourself that will grow you closer to God and what he desires through fellowship with other sisters in Christ. So thankful the Lord led me here.

I love my midwife, but she and EBJ have played two very different roles in my pregnancy journey. My midwife prepares me physically for the time of birth and I expect her to be there to assist me physically when that time comes.
Brooke and this community I have been honored to participate in gives me more than that. In addition to the invaluable information provided in an easy format to study, I have gained a sisterhood that supports me on a spiritual sense... It has been a vital part of my journey to be around other women who are making similar decisions to mine.
While I have an amazing, godly midwife who is well trained, and while I have access to many great books and videos that have helped me further my education and prepare me physically and beyond, EBJ has really empowered me to be able to become more in tune with what is going on in my body, mind, heart, and spirit. It has not only helped me as I continue to round out my education of the physical, but also helped nurture those other parts of me that are so involved in and important to the process of pregnancy, labor, birth, and motherhood. And the best part of it all? It does this by bringing my focus to Christ and showing me just how intimately involved He is in all of it, and how earnestly He desires to be invited into every moment, to partner with me in this miracle.
I'm a 40-something mama 5x over (all home births), and wife to a good man in ministry. We abide on an a wild 1.5-acre property in a too-small farm house on the edge of a west Michigan city with a lot of hens and 3 cats, too.
I've been attending births for a decade now, first as a birth photographer, then as a midwife apprentice, a doula, and a birth keeper. I've been teaching women about childbirth for 3 years, using a Christ-centric, physiological, holistic model.
In addition to my birth work experience, I'm a master's level counselor, holistic health coach, disciple-maker, unschooling mama, pretty decent free-style cook, bibliophile, nature nerd, and pro-level documentary family photographer.
I can't wait to get to know you, and to journey together.
