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.

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.

Look Who’s Arrived!

  • Miss Everly Kay has arrived! She weighed in at 7lbs 8oz and is 20.5 in long. She was born on 9/19/18 early in the morning. First time parents drove from over 2 hours away. Mama worked so well throughout her labor and had a wonderful water birth, it was a pleasure to be a part of.
  • On Wednesday 9/12/18 an amazing couple worked beautifully together and welcomed their baby girl into the world. Eden Rayne was born in the water as daddy helped to catch her, and she snuggled right into her mommy’s arms. Eden weighs 10lbs 5oz and is 22 1/2 in long. Her big brother was also very excited to meet her!
  • Then on 9/11, exactly 3 years after her big sister was born at Dayspring, Scarlet Lynn was born at 1:15am, weighing just 6-3. This birth was a bit more calm than her sisters, who hardly wanted to wait for the midwife. Scarlet surprised us with her size as she looked so chunky, but she was just short and compact.
  • I am so far behind... last week was a whirlwind of babies and life. Let’s get caught up. On 9/6 at 2:11am John Connell Moore was born after a very long haul for his mama. What a strong woman she is, inside and out. John weighed 8-5 and is a spitting image of his daddy. So happy to have had the opportunity to be with this family on this journey.

  • So So true!!!!
  • This truly was a Labor Day weekend at Dayspring. We had three babies come within a little over 24hrs of each other! The first was Mr. Sebastian Dafydd Llywelyn who arrived in his parents home at 3:01am on the 2nd. He was born in his daddy’s home office as this is where mama wanted to labor most of the time. He’s a strapping 9lbs 1oz and is 22” tall. He joins his big sister who has been so helpful finding his heartbeat at appointments. She’s a little disappointed we don’t have to use the doppler anymore.
  • Only home for two hours when I was summoned to another birth. This time a first time mama, at home. Realizing that a birthpool, though wasn’t part of the birth plan, would help this labor tremendously, I scurried around town, at 3am, purchasing a new hose from Walmart and running to grab a tub from the birthcenter. These are things that make births memorable. Once back at the parents home, the tub proved to be the life saver. Tiny baby Gloria Magdalene was born into her mamas hands at 8:38am, on Labor Day morning. She weighs 6-15 and is cute as a button. So proud of this mama and her amazing Doula husband.
  • Labor Day weekend has been a great weekend for labors... 3 to be exact. I’m jumping a bit out of line as these births are piling up so I’m going to share the second baby of the weekend Lil miss sis made an 11th hour appearance as her mama was nearing 42 wks. With a little bit of persuasion she was kind to her mama and came quickly, being delivered in the water at Dayspring. Her mama caught her. Weighing 8-5 this cutie joins 2 brothers.
  • Welcome Martin Anthony, born August 24th at 9:07pm. How fun to see the looks of surprise and delight on his parents’ faces as they discovered that they had just added another BOY to their family! Martin joins two older sisters and one older brother, who have all been Dayspring babies! He weighed in at 8lbs 2oz and is 22.5” long. His mama did a beautiful job with a labor that in many ways was different than any of her others <3

It was such a joyous time!! She weighs 8lbs 7oz and is 21.5” long. She is a first baby and it was fun seeing the surprise on everyone’s face when mama announced that they have a daughter!
