I am Inga Arts, LM, CPM. I received my midwifery training in Alaska under two wonderful licensed midwives. I became a CPM under NARM in 1997 and when Idaho became a licensed state in 2010 I was the second midwife in the state to obtain my license. I have been married to a very supportive husband for 33+ years. He has helped see my dream of a birthing center become a reality. We have four wonderful children, all who have been born at home with midwives. I had the joy of delivering 10 of my grandchildren! I have been involved with birth since 1988 and have been caring for my own clients since 1997 when I started DaySpring and delivered well over 1,000 babies.
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!
My life is filled with being a midwife, spending precious time with my grown children, being Grammy and enjoying life on our little piece of heaven out on the prairie. I love to travel and now in this stage of my life I am able to get a few trips in here and there. I like it most when I can take my entire family, which is getting harder given the size. I enjoy keeping many balls in the air at one time, God sustains me and for that I am blessed.
Amie Storm, CPM, LMLicensed 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. In 2016, I decided to finish what I began years before, to become a midwife. In October of 2016, we moved to Idaho from Pennsylvania and I joined Dayspring as a student midwife. I finished my apprenticeship under Inga and Jenn, and have been so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful team! Early in 2018 I obtained my CPM and Idaho license, and I will continue to work at Dayspring.

Jennifer BookamerDoula & Childbirth Educator
Hello! I’m Jennifer Bookamer. I have been a childbirth educator and doula since 1998. My goal is to help families increase confidence and decrease fear.
I believe that you are capable of making decisions that are right for your family. If you are uncertain and need more information, I can help you find it. Support from me is unbiased and calming. Your partner will receive support as well, which brings a sense of relief and more enjoyment of the journey. My desire for you is that when you tell your birth story, you remember the day as one that was positive and empowering!
Any birth worker will tell you they can’t do this without support. I am grateful to have a family that stands behind me, including my husband and two grown daughters.
I am honored to have been a part of the Dayspring team since 2003.
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!
Hi. I’m Kristin. I came to DaySpring in 2021 and had no idea what I was getting into. I never knew how truly beautiful the birthing world could be. All three of my babies were born c-section, which I was ok with, at the time. Now that I know and if I could do it again there is no place I would rather be than here. These women are amazing. I’m looking forward to the day they get to help my daughters delivery my grand babies.
