Meet Our Team

Jenn Brakeman, LM, CPM

Midwife

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

Founder, Head Midwife

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. Our goal is to care for healthy, low risk women through an essentially normal pregnancy and delivery.

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.

  • And the streak continues with Baby Maximilian Joseph born rather quickly yesterday morning at 7:51. Max topped the scale at 8lbs even. Max was born in the water at Dayspring, he joins a brother and a sister who may have to warm up to him not being a sister, as they requested. And I think this ends our streak.... or does it 😂
  • Yesterday brought another bundle of joy. Rias was born at 9:59 am weighing 7 lbs 15oz. Mama worked long and hard for this little package, but never lost her sense of humor through it all. Such a joy to have been part of their journey.
  • And the streak continues. Meet this chunk of love. Born today at 10:47am... Amiya Faith Marie weighing 8lbs 15oz. Her mama rocked it. She cut 30 hours off her first birth even though it was 8 years ago. Big sister was pretty excited to meet her baby sis.
  • Happy New Year! If our births keep going like this we will need to open a drive through!!! Little Ashlynn Joy arrived last evening at 6:30, only 15 min after her mama arrived at the birth center. She weighs 8lbs 6oz and joins 3 sisters so excited to meet her! Congratulations!!

  • And with just enough time to make it back to the birth center to help welcome Christmas gift #2 - baby Madeline Judy was born in the water at 11:05pm. She weighed 6lbs 15oz. Madeline joins 3 siblings and is the first to be born at Dayspring. This was the Merriest of Christmas’

At 8:29 pm this Christmas gift was brought to join his two brothers, Waylon weighed 8 lbs 5 oz and just precious.
  • Christmas time babies are really special. Especially when a first time mom gives birth, this time of the year, I can’t help imagine what it was like for Mary, in a stable long ago. Thursday night was a birth that had that special type of feeling. Little Josie Mae was born on Dec. 20th at 6:45pm. This precious girl was so kind to her mother by giving her a full night sleep and then making her appearance before bed time. 8 lbs 9 oz lil Josie was just a cutie. Good job mama, congrats to the whole family...Merry Christmas!
  • First time parents rocked the birth of their sweet baby girl! She was born on 12/8 at 9:55pm. Mom was so in tune with what she needed to do in her labor and had a smooth, gentle birth. Dad was ready to catch and he did great! They are still deciding on a name for her. She weighs 8lbs 5oz and is 21.5 in long. Congrats on your sweet little family 💗
