Meet Our Team

Jenn Brakeman, LM, CPM

Midwife

My name is Jenn Brakeman. I became inspired to learn about natural childbirth early in 2007 after watching the difficult journey my sister-in-law had with the birth of her first baby. At the time I didn’t know that midwifery care existed but my passion was ignited and I began reading everything I could get my hands on.

Meet the rest of the team…

Hi, my name is Inga Arts, LM, CPM. I am a Licensed Midwife, as well as a Certified Professional Midwife, CPM and founder of Dayspring Midwifery, est. 1997. It takes a lot of key people to really be able to give the kind of quality care and support we offer. It is our pleasure to service the families in our community in this way.

Amie Storm, CPM, LM

Licensed Midwife

Hi, I’m Amie Storm and I absolutely love what I get to do! My journey started when I was 18 years old and was invited to attend a home birth. Three years later I was married to my very supportive husband, and we had our son at home with a midwife. Soon to follow was our second son, and then a daughter who were also born at home. In 2008 I began an apprenticeship with a midwife and continued for over 3 years, learning all that I could about midwifery. I fell in love with it and knew that attending births was what I wanted to do. I continued as a birth doula and birth assistant for the next 5 years, taking a small break to focus on homeschooling our young children.

  • Can we welcome Mr. Phillip Joshua. He is sibling #11 and this is his mama’s first out of hospital experience. We had a great time... mama hardly let on that she was in labor when little Phillip arrived. This exceptional 7 lb 11 oz package arrived in the middle of a clinic day, she loved the noises down below of children running through the clinic, it was almost a comfort to her. This blessed little guy arrived on Thursday Nov 9th, at just a little past 5:00 pm. Welcome little one!
  • Meet little miss Liberty Mae!! She is a first baby and I love her birth story. Her mama went from wanting a hospital epidural birth when she first found out she was pregnant to a birth with midwives OOH. Not only that but this mama overcame some big statistical odds to have her baby the way she did and she birthed with a surprising amount of grace and control. I’m so proud of you mama!! Liberty weighs 8-0 and is 20.5” long and was born Oct 30th at 9:12pm. Congrats mama & daddy!
  • Another beautiful birth by an amazing mama! On Sunday 10/21/18 at 2:12pm Aaralynn Clair arrived, she weighed 8lbs 11oz and is 21 in long. Both her and her brother were born at Dayspring.
  • Sometimes life gives us more questions than answers... but this we know... God is faithful, and He gets it when we don’t. Update on baby Caleb... He went to be with Jesus and the Angels today at 3:50 pm. I thank you all for the prayers for him and the family. Please keep His family in your prayers. This is never easy, and we can’t ever truly understand. But we know he is free and whole. If you find it in your heart to donate, please find his go fund me page. Caleb, thank you for the short time we had sweet baby.
  • Sometimes moms need a redemption birth, other times midwives need a redemption birth... this was mine! Annalie Suzette, was born Friday afternoon at 4:11. She was the first girl for this family after two boys, both born w/ Dayspring. Annalie weighed 8-9, beautiful water birth... lots of tears of joy. All that comes to mind is “His mercies are new every morning.” I know, doesn’t really make sense... but it does to the family and me! And I am so thankful! 💕💕💕
  • I want to give you all an update on baby Caleb and thank you for your prayers. (Mom has given me permission to do so). As of today he is breathing on his own. Miracle when your born at 33 wks without steroids. They have weaned him off the meds he had to be on, He has come through 2 surgeries, the fluid on his brain is being slowly drained. Like I’ve said before, this little guy is a fighter... he has defied all odds. He has a long road ahead, but Praise God he HAS a road ahead. Mom and dad appreciate all the the love and prayers you have sent their way. Please don’t stop! Here’s today’s picture.
  • Wednesday held surprises like no other. Sweet baby Caleb Daniel came into this world 7 weeks early. Caleb has a long fight ahead of him, but this mighty little man is a fighter and has already beat the odds. At 3lbs 6oz he is 100% amazing. Please keep mom and family in your prayers and we will continue to believe for miracles.
  • Benjamin David arrived early Thursday morning! He weighed 7lbs 2oz and is 21 in long. He will have a lot of love with two older sisters to help take care of him! Congratulations mom and dad 🎉
  • Meet Olivia Maizey born at 12:50am on Tuesday weighing 8-15. Ya know, every mama that births her baby is a warrior mama but this mama really gave a whole new meaning to warrior. Every time I think of what she overcame to have this sweet girl, I am truly in awe!!
  • This baby just made my week! Mr Jayden Thomas made a VERY quick arrival, yesterday, 10/03 at 5:05am. He weighed 7-10. Came so fast it was fortunate to say he was born at Dayspring and not in the car. This was mama’s first baby. Welcome little man!
  • Look at these eyes!!! Meet Malachi Paxton, born at 3:18pm on September 28th. His laidback personality may be part of why he was in no rush to get here. Weighing in at 7lbs 4oz, this sweet boy is the smallest in his family so far. He joins 3 big sisters and 2 big brothers who were thrilled to welcome him home!
  • Late on the post but certainly not least. This strapping young man was born last Thur the 20th at 8:36pm weighing 8-12. His name is Canaan and he is a first baby. It was so fun watching his mama and daddy fall head over heals for him!
