Meet Our Team

Jenn Brakeman, LM, CPM


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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Another exciting night! Baby Clara Margaret made a fairly quick appearance on her sister and daddy’s birthday... what are the chances? Seems to be a trend around here. At 3:06am on Monday morning this cutest 6lb 1oz little girl was born at home. She came out so alert, looking around like, “what did I just do?”
