Lovers Lane Birth Center

Our Team

I believe that women and their babies are too important to be left to the mercy of an insensitive, expensive and interventive medical system.
— Dinah

Lovers Lane Birth Center is a midwifery practice in Richardson, Texas serving women and their families in the Dallas area who are seeking a natural birth at our birth center or in the comfort of their home. The staff of Lovers Lane Birth Center is committed to providing care that is respectful, informative and family-centered.

Dinah Waranch
Certified Nurse Midwife

Dinah's midwifery journey may have begun with stories her mother told her about giving birth. "You just slid out of me, tiny, perfect and crying. It was a high point of my life" she told her. She grew up in the UK, spent her formative early adulthood in Israel and then moved to Texas. Dinah is the owner  of Lovers Lane Birth Center. She is a certified nurse midwife, a registered nurse with graduate certification in midwifery.  

Dinah loves being a midwife, being a mother and hopes to be a grandmother one day.

She is totally committed to out of hospital birth and has had three wonderful, empowering natural births herself.


Krystal Brown
Certified Nurse Midwife

Krystal is not with us yet!

But I am so excited that she will be midwifing at LLBC.

She is my daughter midwife, having trained at the birth center three years ago. After several years of Parkland experience, she will be back where her heart is, out of hospital, independent midwifery.

So looking forward to having her.

In the meantime Emily Sloan CNM and Kristy Hammack LM CPM will be filling in until Krystal can join us.

We all love Emily and Kristy who have been part of Lovers Lane Birth Center for years, as former client, former primary midwives, current birth assistants. They will be stepping up and helping out until Krystal takes over in April. Thanks Emily and Kristy.

Receptionist/Front Office

Stacey loves getting to know the moms and following each family's pregnancy and birth journey. As a mother of two teenagers, she finds the Birth Center to be calming and peaceful. In most cases, she is the first smile that will greet you and the last person to hug and say goodbye at your last postpartum visit. She strives to make a lasting impression by being patient, kind, and a resource to all.
