A health pregnancy doesn’t start at conception. Like so many things in life, preparation is the key to the best experience – not just throughout the pregnancy journey but for postpartum healing long after the birth of your baby.

In this episode, Dr. Dan Turo welcomes Dr. Melissa Matthews, a chiropractor from Guntersville, Alabama to discuss the perinatal care paradigm – care before, during, and after pregnancy. The conversation revolves around Dr. Melissa’s personal experience with postpartum depletion after her first pregnancy, which led her to discover the Shafer Protocol, a comprehensive approach to preconception care and overall health. Dr. Melissa emphasizes the importance of preparing the body for conception, both for the mother and father, to ensure optimal health for the child and prevent issues like infertility, postpartum depression, and generational health problems. If pregnancy is in your future or you’re working through the perinatal care paradigm, take the time to take this episode in.
