Queen City Pelvic PT


Pelvic Health

As a pelvic physical therapist, I have the dream that every women who is pregnant or has delivered a baby would be able to see a pelvic physical therapist at least once! I want women to know there is someone to walk alongside them in the journey. Along this journey we can talk about the ways the body will change and how to take care of it before, during and after pregnancy. We can work together to ensure safe exercise, postural awareness, and perineal care. Post partum care is essential and I'm here to partner with women who may be having urinary incontinence, pain, or difficulty returning to exercise!

Mental Health

Becoming a mother changes everything. I provide holistic mental health therapy for mothers at all stages in their motherhood journey. My passion is to help you change and heal ancestral patterns through inner child work and cognitive retraining. I blend in the connection to your body and spirit to deepen the healing work.

Annie Linville, PT, DPT, ATC, CSCS



Sports and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

I've always identified as a sports/ortho PT, until I realized how little I knew to help pregnant and postpartum patients. My passion is providing guidance during pregnancy and into the fourth trimester, especially in relation to fitness and movement. I am trained to perform internal and external assessments of the pelvic floor, but focus more on applying that information to the big picture: posture, hip strength, movement, breath mechanics, and more. Women leave our sessions feeling confident in how to stay moving safely during pregnancy, and return to exercise postpartum without dysfunction.

Balance Zen


Pre & Postnatal Fitness Training, Corrective Exercise, Core Consultant

I am a pre and postnatal fitness training specializing in core strength during pregnancy and after. I use the Fit For Birth Core Breathing Belly Pump with all my clients and I teach them how to use their breath and core engagement in all movements - both daily activities and exercises that they enjoy. My goal for my clients is to learn as much as they can about themselves & their bodies while working with me - I aim to empower them so that they can have the intuition and mind body connection to make decisions for themselves in the long run. I offer group fitness (non-perinatal) that many graduated clients choose to take advantage of, but otherwise, I want my clients to do the activities they love with the information I provide. I train my perinatal clients in ways that reduce risk of diastasis, perineal tearing, pelvic floor disfunction, incontinence, weakened core, desperate TVA... etc. Basically I want my clients to have anything BUT a traumatic birth experience including that postpartum recovery. <3
