I’m Inga Arts

founder of dayspring

Hi, I am Inga Arts, LM, CPM. 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.


Dayspring Birth Center

The charm and warmth of a historic farmhouse,  the comfort of well-equipped birthing suites, and the heart and hospitality of the Dayspring team have combined to create something very special.  Our clients tell us they feel that when they step inside the birth center.   In addition to the welcoming atmosphere, our birth center is fully equipped with the tools and technology to provide the excellent care that Dayspring is known for.

What our clients say:

“I’ve had seven home births in multiple countries and states, the last two being with Inga and her amazing team. They were the best two births thanks to the quality care Dayspring provided. From the prenatal massages to answering a million text messages from me to helping me navigate blood pressure issues - I felt well taken care of!”

Kate S.

" I have delivered six babies with Dayspring over the last ten years. Five water births and one home birth. Though each time has been slightly different, the loving care and beautiful space to allow my body to do what it needs to do and the encouragement to keep my mind focused has remained the same. Inga and the other ladies here have a gift and I feel greatly blessed to know them and to have been under their care. From listening to baby’s first heartbeat to first breath, and even into postpartum, I can feel they truly care for the health and well-being of me and my baby. They know me better than I know myself at times. It’s a deeply personal and beautiful experience that I am so thankful for and will treasure for the rest of my life!"

"You have made the beauty and miracle of birth an even more beautiful experience. Thank you for all you have done for the community and especially for delivering all 3 of my amazing children"
