birth services & hypnotherapy


Welcome! After 6 years in the birth community we're finally in the process of working on our new website!  Stay tuned this fall for exciting changes. Please follow the journey over on facebook and instagram where I'm super active and passionate about sharing what's new in the birth world! 


I felt an instant connection birth work after the birth of my niece in 2008. I look back at the experience as one of my fondest and most life changing memories.  I am a birth doula, a childbirth education instructor, a prenatal yoga instructor, and a triathlete.  I enjoy all things health and wellness related.  I've always had a strong desire to be in a profession where I work to support and educate people. I love what I do and am passionate about childbirth. When women and their birth partners understand the birth process, their options, and feel supported, it enables them to experience birthing as positive and joyful experience. My hopes are for us to develop a trusting relationship where you learn your choices in childbirth, explore your birth preferences, feel comfortable asking questions, and where you and your birth partner feel supported with your choices in childbirth. I am a DONA and Hypnobabies trained doula, My experience includes working with natural births, medicated births, VBACs, cesarean birth, waterbirth, twin deliveries, high-risk births at CHOP,‚Äč single parents, teens, and same sex parents.


Karen has moved Germany. Nancy and Karen are still available for Distance Hypnotherapy until they return to the Philadelphia area. Keli Engleson is teaching Hypnobabies classes, accepting doula clients, and teaching prenatal yoga currently.


Wishing you a joyful birthing,

Keli
