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.

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.

Look Who’s Arrived!

  • Watching children grow up and becoming beautiful women, giving birth like the amazing people they are... that’s what we got to witness late Saturday evening. This young lady has been a part of our family since she was 9. Saturday at 10:52pm she brought beautiful baby Ruth McKenzie May, into the world, weighing 8lbs 11oz. Welcome, my bonus granddaughter. Congratulations mom and dad, love you. 💕
  • Time to announce our storm babies. Storm #1 early Saturday morning with winds gusting to 45 mph, my husband drove his plow, at 3:30 am, down Hayden ave, to plow through the drifts, to get me safely to the birth center. Shortly after 4:15 mom and dad made it to the birth center and gave birth to this sweet little girl just 23 minutes later. Still not named, we will call her Elsa 😁, was born at 5:17 am. This was an amazing redemption birth for mama. It was such a blessing to be a part of. Baby girl weighed 8lbs 5oz.
  • This handsome fella is a week old now! His name is Brytlon Robert and is 8lbs 3oz big. He came quickly into his daddy’s hands with his 4 older siblings watching from the sidelines. They are all DaySpring babies and he is the 2nd one daddy had to catch before the midwife arrived!! We are so overjoyed that he gets to join this sweet family.
  • Nothing more rewarding than a client that moves away and decides she can’t have a baby with anyone else... makes the trek of an hour and a half to have her baby at DaySpring. Baby Tristan Dale was welcomed into the world last evening at 6:41pm. This is mama’s 5th baby and all of them have been DaySpring babies. He was an amazing 8 lbs and 13oz. I am humbly grateful that we were allowed and blessed to once again be a part of this families journey.
  • Early in the morning on January 17th we helped welcome Eliana Louise into the world, while her big brother and sister slept in the next rooms. What an exciting surprise to wake up to a new family member! Mom and dad worked well together and are so beyond happy to have their sweet baby girl here. Eliana weighs 8 lbs and is 21.5 in long. We are so honored to be a part of your wonderful day! 💗
  • We did it!!! 59:Escape Adventures, with 2 minutes and 22 seconds left in the clock... The Dayspring Team escaped! So fun!!!! Good work team!!!😁
  • 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.
