So, you wanna meet me, huh???
Well, I am Dr. Charminae (pronounced Shar-MEN-A not Shar-MAINE LOL) and…
I’m a BADASS chiropractor who equips mamas with HANDS-ON tools to improve their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experiences.
Since starting Charms of Care in 2013, I have recognized that women needed more than just my chiropractic expertise to successfully have the less painful pregnancy experiences that they desired. Yes, physical support & pain relief throughout their changing bodies was/is IMPORTANT, but so was their emotional and mental well-beings. I noticed that while these women were building and birthing new life, they were simultaneously being stripped of their power and potential throughout their pregnancy & postpartum journeys. This was mainly due to NOT having enough FACTUAL knowledge about birth, and what their bodies were capable of doing.
As a result, I decided to expand my knowledge & skills by becoming a birth doula in 2015, a childbirth educator in 2016, and also accumulating several certifications at numerous body and birth workshops, so that I was able to truly understand how our bodies and minds operate during this perinatal phase.
This transition into birth advocacy motivated me to start providing care that would INFORM & EMPOWER while also improving function; which was the missing piece that would grant me the space to contribute to the improvement of the maternal health crisis here in this country.
Therefore, I am here to help you to effectively prepare during this journey to meeting your little one(s) and beyond it. And if you are here, WE WILL continue to IMPROVE PREGNANCY + REDEFINE BIRTH & MAMAHOOD TOGETHER.
It is with great honor and joy that I serve you!
