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

Founder, Head Midwife
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.

There’s nothing like starting the day with a birth. It’s the best B vitamins or caffeine fix you could ask for. This morning I had the privilege to assist a repeat mama with baby #2. She is not named yet, but her brother (4) wants to call her compass and change his name to “watch”. Luv it. Well, her is this sweet 6lb 1oz home birth baby that is a gift!!!
