Melissa KosloskiSt. Cloud, Minnesota About Me
My name is Melissa Kosloski and I was born and raised in Central Minnesota, which I continue to call home with my wonderful husband, our two spirited young boys, and a third baby on the way. While my pregnancies have been relatively uneventful, the births of my sons were very different. My first was born in the hospital, after an induction, many interventions and pain medication, and eventually a cesarean section. With my second son, I did some things very differently. I hired a doula, saw a Webster certified chiropractor, and found midwives to support me. His birth was beautifully healing for me, and he was born at home, in the water, and into my arms.
My varying experiences in birth led me to find my passion! I recognized a need in my area for more choices for pregnant and birthing women, as well as more opportunities for support and education. I now teach Birth Boot Camp childbirth education classes in the St. Cloud, MN area, as well as support birthing women during labor and birth as a Birth Boot Camp DOULA. I am also an active member of the local Birth Community. We help connect families with local birth resources and bring birth related events and options to our area.
I love to help women, as well as their partners and families, as they navigate this amazing and life changing time in their life. It is my honor to Support Women with Education, Love, & Laughter. I want you to have a SWELL Birth!!
