During these uncertain times, how can we help?

Mind Body Baby, a non-profit collective, strives to educate and support new caregivers through the prenatal, perinatal and postpartum experience because when caregivers are nurtured and knowledgeable, children have the ability to reach their fullest potential.
Mind Body Baby is founded by four infant/postpartum practitioners - Cynthia Wood of Infant Massage Charlotte; Dr. Brenda Gajowski of She Thrives Physical Therapy and Wellness; Dr. Jen DiCicco of Baby Steps; and Morgan Griffith of Sleep Pea Infant and Toddler Sleep Consulting. The organization will expand to a large collective of practitioners and volunteers to provide prenatal and postpartum support to caretakers and families. The term 'practitioner’ includes services (beyond those of the founders) such as lactation consulting; financial planning; emotional preparation and postpartum therapy; doulas; midwives; and other support and education services.
Mind Body Baby (MBB) plans to fulfill its mission as a facilitator of a village for new parents, working to include all the elements of Charlotte’s diverse population. In the short term, we want begin with several program ideas, including new caregiver support groups, special classes for at-risk populations, a Top 5 video education program and a baby wearing/ essentials initiative.
