Kristen Phillips - Owner / Midwife
Kristen’s journey to midwifery began when she was pregnant for the first time & began her search for her own midwife. From her four pregnancies and birth experiences, all with midwives, she knew that she would someday be involved in women’s healthcare.
She began attending births as a doula and had the privilege to serve women and their families for 10 years before she decided to attend midwifery school. Along with her husband, Greg and their four children she moved to Gainesville, and attended The Florida School of Traditional Midwifery. She graduated in 2010 and became a Licensed Midwife and began her midwifery career at the Birth Center of Gainesville. In 2011 she opened her own homebirth practice in Gainesville. She’s had the privilege of attending over 300 births.
Just recently, in April 2012 the opportunity became available to purchase the Birth Center of Gainesville. Along with her business partner, Sarah Baldwin, LM, she returned to the birth center and began a new chapter. It is a joy to be back at the birth center. We have a new vision for our practice and I look forward to continuing to serve these women and their families during their childbearing years.
