Meet Our Team
Caryn Phillips, PT, DPT (she/her)
Doctor of Physical Therapy, Pelvic Floor Therapist, Pregnancy and Postpartum Athlete Specialist, Owner
Dr. Caryn Phillips knows first-hand about the changes women go through physically, mentally and hormonally during pregnancy and during the postpartum period. So much of this is never discussed with health care providers, leaving women feeling poorly informed and helpless throughout this monumental stage of their lives. In creating MomLife Health and Wellness, Caryn's hope is to bridge the gap between new/expecting moms and perinatal health by bringing all the information to you!
Caryn received her Masters from the University of Connecticut and went on to receive her Doctorate from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions. She has completed numerous trainings focusing on prenatal and postpartum exercise, yoga for pelvic pain, myofascial and visceral manual techniques, bowel dysfunction, mind-body connection, and more. She is also certified in functional dry needling, and is a Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach. In addition to patient care, Caryn assisted in developing a new pelvic health program in a major Boston hospital. She is very passionate about increasing pelvic and perinatal health awareness in our communities.
She is a mom of two boys, Brayden and Oliver, and lives with them and her husband in Franklin, MA.
