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.

Day 3…. After a full clinic day…. Got called to a fast happening birth. I had just seen this mama this morning. She didn’t think anything was happening, but I told Jenn “I think we will have a baby today.” Sure enough… At 4:29 pm we got to assist a sweet boy 8lb 8oz, Norris Ames, into this world. Mama’s biggest, fastest, and #6. This is their 2nd home birth with us.

These babies don’t always follow the plan :) but Arrow Maurice made a fun quick arrival last night just following the big storm. He was born 11:09pm weighing 8lbs 4oz. He joins two excited brothers. All 3 are Dayspring babies. ❤️❤️❤️

This sweet pea was born Saturday morning on her Mama’s birthday and her due date. Her parents named her Nora Jeanne, after her Mama, before they ever new they would be sharing a birthday, how cool!! She weighed 9-2 and joins 5 siblings.

Then after a full day of clinic we finished up the evening with the home arrival of Evelyn Kathleen weighing 7-4. The room was full of joy and laughter after the speedy arrival. She joins 2 brothers and a sister. This family has been long time friends of ours and it’s just such a joy to be a part of their births. ❤️
