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. 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.

Look Who’s Arrived!

And nearly 24 hours ago we welcomed Noah Daniel to this side of life. Such a wonderful waterbirth at Dayspring. Noah was born at 6:50 weighing 8-7. This was a birth that brought out the sappy Grammy that I am. And I am once again reminded of the goodness of God, the beauty of life, and how thankful I am for the calling I have. I love my life :). Welcome baby Noah!

Such a joy watching this couple become parents to Miss Amaris Rose this morning. Her name means ‘given by God.’ She is a healthy 9lbs 5 oz and arrived at 5:54 am. She was caught by daddy with both her Grandmas and a Great Grandma circling around.

This little Miss took her time getting here and she continues to be a laid back little gal. She weighs 7lbs 11oz and came to meet us at 7:53pm last night. She joins an awesome big brother and a 20 mo old sister. I can’t wait to see what her Mama & Daddy name her.
