MICHELLE MICHNIEWICZ - BEREAVEMENT TEAM LEADER
Michelle Michniewicz is volunteer birth and bereavement doula in the Northwest Indiana area. Her business Juno’s Promise was established in 2016, almost one year after her daughter Juno was born at 35 weeks without a heartbeat. Michelle’s experience at the hospital led her on a journey to serve the community and provide support to families struggling through pregnancy after loss as well as during loss.
Well before Juno’s Promise, Michelle did missionary work in locations across Latin America and the Dominican Republic. Her non-profit efforts also include serving as a board member for a non-profit preschool - Caring Heart Open Arms Childcare and Development Ministry.
Michelle became involved with Emma’s Footprints shortly after her first conversation with founder Amelia Kowalysin, just 3 days after the death of her daughter. Michelle and her husband Ryan recently experienced the birth of their rainbow baby via adoption, making them a beautiful blended family of 8.
