Mind Body Baby Perinatal Support Directory

Serving Charlotte and Surrounding Areas

The Mind Body Baby Perinatal Support Directory (PSD) is a free resource for new and expectant families in Charlotte. The directory offers access to organizations and practitioners who focus on the parenting and caretaking journey, from conception to roughly one year post-delivery. Every practitioner listed in the PSD has training and certification appropriate to their specialty, and significant experience working with perinatal families.


Because the perinatal period is often replete with immense learning curves and unexpected obstacles, finding the resources you need to better inform and support your journey should not present yet another hurdle. Instead, MBB strives to simplify your access to local resources and practitioners so you can focus your energy on what matters most: you and your baby.


Use of the PSD assumes your agreement to our terms of use and privacy policy. Your experience matters to us. Should you wish to ask questions, express a concern or sing the praises of anyone listed, please reach out to us at collective@mindbodybabync.org.

Pelvic Health

Queen City Pelvic PT


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!

The benefits of massage for an infant are seemingly endless. Massage help to build a sense of security for your child. It helps infants grow by supporting food absorption and digestion, facilitates bonding and attachment, reduces disorganization of nerves and works to build a strong nervous system. Massage can reduce anxiety, stress and improve quality of sleep for Mom and baby and it help treat a number of common baby ailments/ obstacles, including colic, gas, nasal or chest congestion, excessive fussiness and, with special considerations, fever.

Darlene Ryan, PT

Pelvic Physical Therapy

Fundamental Physical Therapy

704 565 9475

I work with women dealing with pelvic dysfunction, often related to structural changes associated with pregnancy and delivery. The laxity needed to allow for delivery often creates painful instability in other joints which can be addressed through skilled PT. Often, clients need help re-connecting to their muscles after delivery prior to safely starting back to a full exercise routine. I also work with kids with bowel and bladder issues.
