Our Office Manager

Jen Maynard

In September 2021, Jennifer joined the 3 Sisters Midwifery. Jennifer moved to Waco in 2005 to attend Baylor University. She graduated in 2009 with a BA in Community Health Education. After completing her internship at Care Net Pregnancy Center, she joined their staff as the Community Outreach Coordinator. During her time at Care Net, God grew her desire to love and serve moms during pregnancy and postpartum. When her first daughter was born in October of 2011, she began a new journey as a stay-at-home mom. Jennifer had 2 more girls and they are her greatest treasures- Addie (10), Hannah (7), and Chloe (3).  Jennifer had a natural birth in a hospital setting with a doula and then chose to have home births for her last 2 births and Joycelyn and Bethany were able to deliver her youngest. Her experience with 3 Sisters Midwifery was so beautiful and she felt so loved and supported! Outside of work, Jen homeschools her girls 2 days a week, enjoys being outside gardening, and playing with her girls.

Kristi Bajer

RN, BSN, Advanced Student Midwife

After spending 10yrs in the 90’s working as a childbirth educator, labor coach and attending home births, Kristi returned to school to obtain her nursing degree. She spent the next 20yrs as an ER, L&D and home health nurse providing patient care before entering consulting and quality assurance. When grandbabies started to come, it rekindled her love for mommas, natural birth, and breastfeeding. Her wide-ranging experience is a great compliment to the 3 Sister's team. She is excited to be combining her nursing and midwifery skills to care for mommas while working towards her midwifery certification again. Kristi lives with her husband in the West/Abbott area. Together they have 8 grown children and 6 grandchildren with 2 more expected next spring.
