Dr. Charminae Barnes

Dr. Charminae N. Barnes, known as Dr. Char, is an expert at preparing expecting mothers for birth. She earned her Bachelor’s of Science in biology from Grambling State University in 2005 and her Doctorate in Chiropractic from Parker University in 2009.

As a child who was always completely fascinated with the entire birth process, it was only right that Dr. Char would focus her career on preparing moms to have the most comfortable and enjoyable pregnancy experience possible. To do this effectively, she became certified in Webster Technique through the ICPA in 2013 and founded her practice Charms of Care Chiropractic in December of that same year. In addition, she decided to become a birth doula through CAPPA in 2014. This not only helped her to be a better practitioner, but it allowed women to experience the nurturing and loving approach of a doula, while understanding the biomechanics of the body that chiropractors and childbirth educators have to offer.

Giving birth is one of the most beautiful events that a woman will ever encounter, and having the proper education and guidance to fully embrace that moment is what fuels Dr. Char's passion further. Her mission is to empower pregnant women to heal, grow, and transform from the inside out by facilitating healing and preparation that goes beyond traditional care.

Women are strong, competent, and capable of birthing without fear, and Dr. Char is ready and able to guide them to the power that already exist within, but waits to be exposed. It is with great honor and joy that she serves you.
