Boston Birthing

Supporting Women and Families through Pregnancy and Postpartum

Meet Boston Birthing

The experience of pregnancy and birth has evolved over the years, especially in today’s modern era. I believe that the need for caring, sensitive and knowledgeable support during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see every pregnancy and birth as a miracle and as a certified Doula, I feel honored to be able to contribute my expertise to women and families in the greater Boston area.

HypnoBirthingⓇ The Mongan Method

Karen Zelinsky is the founder of Boston Birthing. Karen's own birthing experiences generated a profound interest, and ultimately a calling, to assist growing families in navigating the experience of birth through prenatal and postpartum support. In 2005 Karen trained to be a prenatal yoga teacher through Finding Inner Peace Yoga School and trained in HypnoBirthingⓇ with founder, Marie Mongan.  In the years since, she has studied and taught many modalities of childbirth education, and has begun giving in person and remote support as a birth  and postpartum doula. Karen shares her expertise through her private practice and she also currently teaches at Newton Wellelsey Hospital, Mt. Auburn Hospital and The Gentle Place Massage and Yoga
