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…

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.

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.

We had a great time... mama hardly let on that she was in labor when little Phillip arrived. This exceptional 7 lb 11 oz package arrived in the middle of a clinic day, she loved the noises down below of children running through the clinic, it was almost a comfort to her. This blessed little guy arrived on Thursday Nov 9th, at just a little past 5:00 pm. Welcome little one!
  • Meet little miss Liberty Mae!! She is a first baby and I love her birth story. Her mama went from wanting a hospital epidural birth when she first found out she was pregnant to a birth with midwives OOH. Not only that but this mama overcame some big statistical odds to have her baby the way she did and she birthed with a surprising amount of grace and control. I’m so proud of you mama!!

Like I’ve said before, this little guy is a fighter... he has defied all odds. He has a long road ahead, but Praise God he HAS a road ahead. Mom and dad appreciate all the the love and prayers you have sent their way. Please don’t stop! Here’s today’s picture.

Caleb has a long fight ahead of him, but this mighty little man is a fighter and has already beat the odds. At 3lbs 6oz he is 100% amazing. Please keep mom and family in your prayers and we will continue to believe for miracles.
