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.

Meet the rest of the team…


Inga Arts, LM, CPM

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.

Oh… Some babies push the 42 week limit and others push the 37 week limit. Such a mystery what makes these wee ones come. Baby Ariah decided today was her day. She was born as a awesome quick waterbirth at Dayspring. She joined us at 4:43pm. I’m really loving these day time babies. Ariah weighed 6lbs 11oz. She joins 2 sisters and a brother.
