Inga Arts, LM, CPMFounder of Dayspring
I am Inga Arts, LM, CPM. I have been married to a very supportive husband since 1988. He has helped see my dream of a birthing center become a reality. We have four wonderful children, and 4 lovely granddaughters, all who have been born out-of-the-hospital. I had the joy of delivering my grandbabies! I have been involved with birth since 1988 and have been caring for my own clients since 1997 when I started Dayspring.

In 2004 we were blessed with an old farm home which we transformed into a beautiful birth center. Since then God has put together a great team of women who love to serve and care for women, just as I do. I couldn’t do all that I do without them!

Jenn Brakeman, CPM, LMLicensed 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.

I enrolled in Midwives College of Utah in January 2008 and joined the Dayspring team that September. I continued serving the families in this area until my husband and I felt God calling us to Southeast Asia in 2010 to work with the internally displaced people in Burma. During the three years there I was privileged to assist medics in learning how to care for pregnant women and to help start a school and clinic in a very remote area. I recently returned to N. Idaho and am honored to be with the Dayspring team once again. With the love and support of my wonderful husband, I just passed my NARM exam and became licensed in Idaho in 2014.

Jennifer Bookamer
Jennifer BookamerDoula & Childbirth Educator
Hello! My name is Jennifer Bookamer. I have been a childbirth educator and doula since 1998. My husband and I have been married since 1990, and I am so grateful for his support. After the birth of our first daughter in 1996 I started the journey into birth work. In 2003 our second daughter was born at home.

I have been fortunate enough to be involved in the birth education process for over 500 couples in the Inland Northwest. It’s my honor to attend births as a doula as well, and support families in their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum time.

I am excited for your family, and looking forward to talking with you more about how I can walk alongside you!
