Prairie Midwifery Service

Hello! My name is Michelle Ruebke. I am a Certified Professional Midwife, serving the families of Kansas since 1987 (21 yrs). 

I am married to a wonderful man, Don Ruebke & we are the busy but blessed parents of 10 amazing children - all born at home with the assistance of midwives. We live just south of Newton in a renovated elementary schoolhouse, where I actually attended 5th & 6th grades! I home school our children and enjoy learning new things (or being reminded of things previously learned & forgotten) with them & find that this provides me with many opportunities for my own character development!

The wonderful experiences of having our first two children born at home with midwives gave me the desire to assist others. I trained through apprenticeship for 2 1/2 years and continue to learn more with each unique mother and baby that I serve.

I am a Christian and my Christianity is an integral part of who I am and therefore affects the way I serve families as a midwife. My clientele is mostly, but not entirely, made up of Christians and I am honored that people of other faiths have felt comfortable enough with who I am to have me as their midwife. I see this as a unique opportunity to show the truth of Who Christ really is by attempting to love them & serve them as He does.

If you would like to learn more about who I am, what services I provide as a midwife and what I expect of the families with whom I work, please contact me (best via e-mail) at to obtain an Informed Consent Agreement &/or to set up an initial visit.
