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…

It’s so much fun when you get to help a friend have her baby!! This mama and I have known each other since elementary school. Daddy & Mama are still deciding his name but he came to meet them at 10:48 this morning weighing 10-3 and is 22.5″ long! – Jenn

It’s always fun when a mama that you don’t even have on you’re radar calls and says “today is the day.” Little Scotlyn Rose jumped ahead of a whole bunch of other babies but her parents were thrilled to meet her today. She was born ever so gently in the water and weighed a surprising 8-10.

God uses so many small things to show his love to us I have experienced a number of them in the last couple days. This morning I helped bring in Little Peter John at 5:45. This was mamas fifth baby I’ve had the privilege of catching all of them, this one however was special, mama had just lost her mama and I had just lost my dad it was therapeutic for both of us. Sweet baby boy weighed 7-13. Looks just like his brothers.
