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.

  • Welcome miss Adelyn Elise. She’s so tiny and sweet. it was a joy to wake very early yesterday morning to help welcome her into the world. It was 4:19am when she emerged from the water. Pink pink pink.... came up squawking. This little thing only weighed 6lbs 4 oz. she joins 2 siblings who were also born at Dayspring.
  • Then this little lady came Sunday at 2:08 in the afternoon. She needed a little convincing that it was not so bad on the outside. She weighs 10-4 and is a whopping 23 1/4” tall. When I went to visit her at home her 5 older siblings had lined their house with banners saying “welcome Laney Louise, we love you!!”
  • Mr. Joseph Thor carries this strong name into the 4th generation. He was born at 5:47 Saturday morning weighing 7-11 and 21” long. He joins a big sister. I’ll never forget the cheers this mama let out when she found out she was 9cm shortly after her arrival to the birth center. Gotta love second babies!!!
  • We had way to much fun today at the Baby Fair. Thanks to all of you that came out. Bekah Saunders you did an excellent job of putting tot all together.
  • My heart is filled with sadness as I have learned, the very first baby of Dayspring, 20 years ago, was taken from us today. My heart goes out to this family. 20 years is not enough. I am reminded of Psalms 139, “My frame was not hidden from you when I was formed in the secret place. ... you eyes saw my unformed body, all the days meant for me were written in your book before even one of them came to be.” I pray comfort and peace for you my friends. I wish I could pull up her birth picture, but it was before Smart phones, but I’ll never forget her dark locks of hair. She was beautiful! RIP M.G.
  • Welcome little Gemma! She was born, very quickly in the water at 3:44 am at the birthcenter. Took her mama by surprise! 8lbs 15oz, 21”. God is so good!
  • Asher Phillip, born Sunday at 5:19pm. 8lbs 8oz. Such a blessing to walk with families through life. This family is no exception. This is baby #4 of 5 that have been born at Dayspring. To know them is to love them. Strength and love are what come to mind when I think of this wonderful couple. Welcome Asher, you are loved and perfect!
  • When you get sleep on both ends of a night with a birth in the middle, it’s hard not to think it was just a dream. Last night was one of those dream births. Vance William was born at 2:44AM. It was a very peaceful home waterbirth while all other 7 siblings slept. Vance weighs 9 lbs 3oz and is 22” long. He is the 7th baby of the family to be born w Dayspring. Mama, your one of the most amazing women I’ve ever known!
