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…

Look Who’s Arrived!

What a joy to watch little Jackson John enter this world!! He came Wednesday night at 8:02 pm weighing 7-12. This was his mama’s first VBAC and she absolutely loved giving birth. She even said “this is so much fun” as he was emerging and the smile on her face made her whole birth team beam with her.

Elyana Sar’ah is such an alert little package that arrived at 1:47am. Sunday morning August 7th, her due date. She was a bit of a challenge for her mama, but all 6 lbs 2 oz of her is just a miracle. She is beautiful!!! We rejoice in her arrival!!!

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.
