About Dr. Caitlin Deems
Dr. Caitlin Deems is the PT & owner of Mom Bodies Perinatal Physical Therapy. She graduated from Mercer University with a doctoral degree in Physical Therapy after becoming an Athletic Trainer. She has worked in a variety of settings, including adult orthopedics, pediatric aquatic & neurodevelopmental therapy. She has also worked as an adjunct professor in the Health & Movement Science department at the University of West Florida & volunteered as a parenting class & Bible study leader at her local pregnancy resource center.
Before having her own child, Mom Bodies was just a dream as she saw so many of her friends struggle through their pregnancies with pain that was avoidable. During her own pregnancy, this dream grew into a possibility as she saw a growing need for perinatal access to physical therapy in her area. After the birth of her son, this need became reality through prayer & the support of family & friends.
“After a very long labor and delivery, I realized how important physical preparation is to a healthy pregnancy & delivery. Afterwards, we saw a gap in postpartum rehabilitation as well. I felt a calling to help women experience full joy in their role as mothers by addressing their physical well-being.”
Caitlin speaks at community events to help educate mothers about the benefits of perinatal physical therapy as they prepare for pregancy, labor & delivery, & navigate the postpartum period.
