Michele Kolakowski, CD & PCD*(DONA), CLC, LMT
Nurturing women and families with loving care, exceptional hands-on healing arts and education has been my passion since 1992. I began as a massage therapist specializing in maternity massage and infant massage education, and attended my first birth as a birth doula in 2002. I had the privilege to join the birth divas of Birth Assistants of Boulder in 2006. It is an honor to witness each mother and father tapping and re-discovering their strength and wisdom through the miracle of birthing their child. My deepest wish is to help families create a satisfying, sacred and joyful birth with respect for their unique choices. I am passionate about facilitating teamwork and mutual respect between families and their nurses, midwives and physicians for the best outcomes and birth experiences for families. I live near Niwot and enjoy high altitude gardening, hikes to mountain summer flowers and glacial lakes, my yoga practice, high school and college basketball (go Niwot Cougars and Carolina Tarheels!) and being witness to my teenage boys becoming amazing young men. I look forward to meeting you!
