021: Empowering Parents With Pediatric PT Marissa Aron

July 9, 2020

Where we have honest conversations with experts in all things health and happiness ranging from pregnancy through menopause… I’m Buffy Stinchfield and I’m on a mission to EMPOWER women to THRIVE instead of being the victim to the unique challenges we face.


As a pelvic health physical therapist and mom of 3, I’ve seen and experienced the struggles that we face as moms and know that we don’t have to do it alone! Join me as we tackle the questions and issues that are core to our experience as women and mothers.

Let’s Be Empowered Together!

For moms, having a new baby can be overwhelming. When it comes to milestones, we just hope that our pediatrician can keep a watch on that and all will be good. But did you know that the real EXPERT in movement milestones and physical changes is a pediatric physical therapist?

I had the pleasure of talking with Dr. Aron, a pediatric and women’s health physical therapist from Florida who gave me the low down on some common things she helps babies and children with ALL THE TIME. From delayed or altered crawling to walking, Marissa shares with us how simple it can be to check in with a pediatric physical therapist to both advocate for your child and put your mind at ease.

Dr. Marissa Aron



Dr. Marissa Aron earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. She, then, returned to her home state of Florida where she has continued with specialty training in pediatrics and women’s health/pelvic floor physical therapy. She ultimately founded Mom & Me PT when it became clear to her that both infants and new moms are lacking the care they need in the traditional healthcare system.

Due to the rapid increase in infant “equipment” used today, problems such as torticollis, flat heads, poor tolerance for tummy time, and delayed milestones have become commonplace. Dr. Marissa feels passionately that parents should be educated on tips to prevent these issues. Additionally, because motor development is closely linked to development of the visual, vestibular, sensory and nervous systems, she encourages consistent check-ups for this development just as babies receive check-ups for medical health.
