About Us

At Natural Beginnings, we do more than just see patients day in and day out.  Every day we build community…and this community is filled with women who feel seen, heard and respected.  


We are a thriving, innovative group of midwives offering many options for care while also managing to keep our “small town” vibe.


Our mission is to empower women to be in control of their health and healthcare experiences, to encourage women that they are worthy to love themselves as well as they love those that surround them, and to do this through encouragement, not fear.

Marcia Ensminger MSN, CNM

While being a Midwife is my passion, when I’m not working I love spending time with my two children. We enjoy hiking and taking cruises to tropical destinations! I also enjoy running and spending time with my hairless terrier, Gaby.

Nicole Winecoff, CNM

I  love my career as a Certified Nurse Midwife and meeting wonderful families who allow me to be a part of their birth experience! When I am not at work I enjoy time with my husband and our two girls, Ashley and Hannah. We love to take family vacations and explore new places! We love to cruise with Disney! Life as a Midwife takes many hours away from my family so we make the most of vacation time!

Jennifer Johnson, CNM, WHNP

I am passionate about empowering women through prenatal care and ensuring that all women have access to the care that they deserve. My goal is to empower, educate and help women to make wise, intuitive choices surrounding their health. I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children. I enjoy traveling to new places, but there’s definitely no place like home. If I’m not working you will usually find me at the soccer field cheering on my kids.

Erica Welch, CNM

Empowering, educating, and caring for women throughout their lifespan has been my passion for as long as I could remember. I am so grateful to be a midwife and care for women every day. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, Stormy and Avery. I love traveling to new places and when not working can be found at the dance studio watching my girls.

Haley Swift, CNM

For as long as I can remember, I have known that being a Midwife was my path. I feel so lucky that I get to help bring life into the world every day, and to be a woman supporting women. When I’m not working, I spend as much time as possible outside with my fiancee, Jeromy, crafting, and snuggling my sweet fur babies, Penny and Lincoln.

Nicole Parchment, CNM

Caring for women is my passion. Midwifery offers me the opportunity to provide safe and compassionate care that empowers women and their families to make informed decisions about their health. I feel honored that I get to be with women during some of the most precious moments of their lives. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children Jayden and Aria. In my free time, you will often find me crafting or in my garden.

Cecilia Robinson, CNM

I am so grateful and honored to be a part of the amazing Natural Beginnings family. This community inspires me. My goal, as a midwife, is to hold space, educate, and provide care that feels safe, empathetic, and supportive. In my free time, I love spending time with friends and family, exploring new places, and listening to music. One of the things that brings me the most joy is snuggles with my cat, Ziggy.
