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.  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.

It was then that Abigail knew God would one day call her to serve through midwifery. Abigail has since then had 4 other successful homebirths. Her days are filled with life- homeschooling her 5 kiddos while stepping into her calling of serving other women! Abigail’s heart’s desire is to please the One who has called her- ‘because He Who calls you is faithful’     1Thess. 5:24

Payton Guillory, SM

Hey there! I'm Payton Guillory, a student midwife with a passion for maternal and infant health. Coming from a family rooted in functional and alternative medicine, I am naturally curious and I thrive on asking the “why “behind at all. When I'm not in the world of midwifery, I'm a self-proclaimed foodie and culinary critic, embracing my love for cooking. My competitive spirit drives me, but at the core, I'm all about love for my people and doing it all for the glory of Yahweh.

Bradleigh Melton, BA

Bradleigh originally worked in healthcare, first as a phlebotomist in 2014, then a nurse in 2017 until she had her first daughter and discovered her true passion was in supporting women during what she believes to be some of the most monumental times of their lives - pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Bradleigh went on to become a lactation counselor in 2019 and has continued to educate herself on holistic living, alternative healthcare, and birth autonomy. Bradleigh and her husband welcomed 2 more daughters into their family supported by the amazing staff at 3 Sisters before the doors opened for her to serve families as part of the 3 Sisters crew.

When Bradleigh isn’t wearing her birth assistant hat she is living her childhood dream of being a wife to her husband, Marquis, and a mom to her 3 daughters - Marleigh, Lynnie, and Noah.
