Experience Natural Childbirth
Our Team

Our team is what makes our birth center a special place for you to have your baby.


Kristen- Birth Center Nurse


Kristen joined our team in September 2015. “I graduated in 2014 with my BSN from National American University.  In addition to being a Registered Nurse, I’m a proud mother and wife.  I have a love for cats and owls.  I believe that there is good in everyone.  The best kind of laugh is when you involuntarily throw your head back, have tears streaming down your face and your abdomen aches from all the laughter.  I’ve always had a strong desire to work with women and their family’s during labor and delivery.  There isn’t anything like a birth experience, each one unique and memorable.  It’s a privilege to be a part of such an intimate experience. As healthcare professionals, I believe it’s in our nature to nurture.”

Jennifer- Birth Center Nurse


I am the proud mother to 4 and wife to 1! I enjoy travel, driving my jeep cross the country or my ATV on the trails, camping, fishing anything outdoors! I have always had a passion for natural healing . Before receiving a degree in nursing I was a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in prenatal massage. I went on to pursue my passion in empowering women in the natural childbirth setting. I love going to work everyday and being a part of something so natural yet so amazing!

Debbie- Post Partum Nurse


I am excited to be a part of the New Birth Company Team and fully embrace the contemporary natural birth philosophy.  I enjoy caring for and assisting new moms and babies get off to a happy and healthy  start and consider it a privilege to be be involved at such a special time in their lives. I attended Kansas State University for my pre-nursing studies and received my degree in Nursing from Wichita State University. I have also completed a certificate program in Holistic Nursing. I have been married to my husband and best friend for 39 years and we have three children and three grandchildren. Besides spending time with family, I enjoy reading, movies and baseball.


Childbirth Educator




Maria joined the New Birth team in July of 2013. She obtained her nursing degree from Neosho County Community College and completed her BSN from MidAmerica Nazarene University. Maria is also a Certified Childbirth Educator and Certified Lactation Counselor. Her passion, which she feels has been a calling on her life, is for moms and babies, in addition to helping families get a good start in their new adventure into parenthood. Maria and her husband have enjoyed 30 years of marriage (they both met while serving in the United States Air Force), raising their 4 children (and all the adventures opened by being a parent), and serving in their local church. In addition, her passion for families, healthcare and serving has opened her world in the area of serving in short term mission trips to Ethiopia. Ephesians 2:10


Ashley- Childbirth Educator

Hainje Family

Ashley joined New Birth Company in April 2015. “I completed RN school in southern California, but I have been back in Kansas practicing as a bachelor’s prepared RN nurse since 2010.  I am always looking to expand my education with taking classes, attending trainings, and researching different aspects of healthcare and nursing.  I have worked in several types of nursing specialities such as school, corrections, psychiatric and labor/delivery. I came to New Birth Company because I enjoy the more holistic side of healthcare and believe that women, in most cases, are able to have a successful, natural child birth as long as they educate themselves and have a great team by their side.  I am excited that I get to be part of your team.”

Amanda- Receptionist/ Midwifery Assistant


Amanda joined the New Birth Company team in June 2015. “I am so excited to be at New Birth Company, it’s such a positive and uplifting place. A little bit about myself, I am a mommy to two wonderful children, my daughter is 4 and my son is 2. I’m a certified CNA, furthering my education with the end goal of being a midwife. I am looking into different programs and options, it’s been my dream my entire life to help bring babies into the world safely and peacefully. I was thrilled when I found this company and sent an email with my resume, immediately. I’m so glad that I did, it’s been a blessing already and I already feel at home. I hope to meet you soon, and wish you happy baby vibes!
