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 our changing bodies is IMPORTANT, but so is our emotional and mental well-beings.



As women, we are sometimes stripped of our power and potential throughout our pregnancy & postpartum journeys because we sometimes lack the guidance and knowledge about what our bodies are capable of doing during this extremely TRANSFORMATIVE time. 




This is why 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.

So, welcome to this sacred space that celebrates life on a grand scale, allowing you and your little babe to enjoy this experience with MORE COMFORT + MORE PEACE.  Together, I am happy to continue to IMPROVE PREGNANCY + REDEFINE BIRTH & MAMAHOOD WITH YOU.

It is with great honor and joy to be apart of your journey to meeting your little one. Peace.laughing
