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.

Kasha Couillard, CPM, LM

Licensed Midwife

Hi, I am Kasha Couillard deRoos. During my own pregnancy in 2016 I read every book I could about natural pregnancy and birth, and had a natural birth in a hospital setting. Four months in to motherhood I began my dive in to birth work, I attended a DONA doula training taught by a rural midwife in Montana. I knew then that community based midwifery was my path. Birth work has allowed me to hone in on my passion for advocacy, education, and compassionate- trauma informed care. In late 2018 I attended my first out of hospital birth and began an apprenticeship in a small practice. In late 2019 I was welcomed to the DaySpring family as a student under Inga, Amie, and Jennifer Brakeman. In January 2022 I obtained my Idaho midwifery license and am grateful to continue to serve my community with DaySpring.

I am blessed with a wonderful, supportive husband and our beautiful blended family. Our two children are spirited and keep us on our toes! When I’m not enmeshing myself with birth or research, I like to fill my time with enjoying concerts, volunteer work, delving in to a new book, or hiking Northwest gems with my family and our dogs.
