Meet Our Team

Jenn Brakeman, CPM, LM

Licensed 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.

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.

  • Amazing fun day at 2nd Annual baby Fair...Thank You Rebekah Kay Saunders for putting it on.
  • Last Wednesday the 17th we received one of those early dawn phone calls to come quick because this sweet girl was about to make her debut. A surprise speedy entrance to everyone including her mom and dad who are first time parents, Miss Zariyah Lynae is 6lbs 12oz and 20.5” tall of pure cuteness. Welcome little one!!
  • Hope to see you all this year!!! So fun, another way to keep connected. Support your birthing community 😁
  • Happy Easter everyone! Love, Your DaySpring Clan
  • Ezra Lang made his appearance yesterday morning at 11:02am, He had a calm water birth and an excited mom and dad to welcome him! He’s a good size boy at 10 lbs 9 oz and he is just over 21in long. His big brother was also born with us at Dayspring 2 years ago. Congratulations
  • First time parents welcomed their baby girl into the world on Friday April 5. Neveah Grace weighed 8 lbs 11 oz and was 21.5 in long. Mom and dad worked so well together throughout labor and birth! We are so excited for you both, Congratulations!
  • And then we finished off the week with the most peaceful birth tucked away in a cabin in the mountains early Saturday morning. Miss Malia Raymer was born in the water surrounded by such an amazing support team! It was a little party in the woods. She weighed 8lbs 10oz and was birthed ever so gently and confidently by her mama. Thank you mama & daddy, such a pleasure to be a part of her birth day!!
  • Then came Miss Genevieve Eleanor early Thursday morning weighing 9lbs even. She is her mama and daddy’s 5th baby. This mama is amazing.... she had such a busy day putting on a celebration for her daughter’s 4th birthday and then tucked her kids in bed only to start labor before going to bed herself. In the wee hours of the morning and nearly fully dilated we moved from her home to the birth center so she could finish up her labor without her kiddos popping in and out of her room. With such grace she told her son that it was time to make room for this new baby in their lives so they were headed on a little field trip to a quieter space and they would be home soon with his new baby sister. I just love this family!!
  • This handsome little man joined his mommy & daddy early Tuesday morning after a bit of a roller coaster ride. Meet Mr. Tomasi James weighing 7lbs 11oz. His mama worked through a long and strong labor with the help of her hubby and mom who guided her through each contraction. She never wavered for a minute until she had her sweet boy in her arms. He is their first baby. A shout out to doula Jen Bookamer who definitely gets my vote as best doula ever for World Doula Week!!
  • Being with a family from their very first, enjoying each new blessing, watching them grow. It’s just so Fun!!! Early this morning, we got to witness this couple having their first girl!! Abigail Louise was born, in the water, at home, 12:52 am. She weighs 8-8 and is such a beautiful baby. So excited for this wonderful family!!!
  • We always talk about how occasionally birth with us ends up with a field trip to the hospital. Well this mama labored with all her might for over 30hrs before we decided we needed a little extra help. Little Miss Josey Mae would not give up her hand which had her all kinds of twisted up. Despite every trick we tried we needed the expert skills of Dr McCrummen who was able to help her out without needing a c-section. She is a 7lb 8oz little beauty who finally made her appearance at 7:04pm Tuesday.
