Is care only needed if I have pain or other symptoms?

No, our care goes beyond pain relief. Actually, its premise is all about creating more connection and balance throughout your body, which can result in (examples):

PREGNANCY | contributing to a healthier environment for your baby to grow and thrive & allow more space for your baby to get into the optimal/best position.

LABOR |  improving the efficiency and time of your labor and birth.

POSTPARTUM | helping you with adaptation to motherhood by supporting your breastfeeding experience, expedite your healing process by removing built up tension throughout your body, and your baby’s body too, which can typically be ignored.

Note: Just because your body is not exemplifying symptoms, does NOT mean that underlying issues are NOT present.  

How do I know if I need Dr. Charminae during my labor?


  • Back Labor: you are experiencing painful contractions (expansions) in your lower back that is difficult for you to manage. This is typically caused by a posterior position of baby
  • Malposition of baby (i.e.: shoulder dystocia or asynclitic baby (head tilted sideways). These positions are determined by your midwife or OB
  • Labor is NOT progressing (i.e.: stuck at 6 cm for several hours)


If you are experiencing this or any other scenario causing your labor to be extremely difficult for you, please text us or leave us a message, and Dr. Charminae will contact you to help as soon as time permits.
