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.

Miss Aurora Lily Mai was a pleasant surprise yesterday afternoon. Her momma and daddy are first time parents and they made such a great team, especially getting to the birth center just in the nick of time!!! She weighs 7 lbs and was born at 3:18pm.

Finally broke the dry spell… This birth was a team building experience, almost thought Jen Bookamer, doula, would get to deliver her 2nd one and Brenda Schnider receptionist, was going to assist. …I got there at the last minute and our student, maggy got to catch her first baby. Was a great afternoon. Little Juliet Rose was born at Dayspring 4:16 pm. She is barely over 6lbs. So happy for this couple!
