006: The Dadhood Journey with Dr. Jay Warren

Dr. Jay Warren has been a prenatal and pediatric chiropractor for 18 years. He is also the Wellness Care Coordinator at the CAP Wellness Center in San Diego, CA where 90% of his practice is pregnant or postpartum women and babies under one year old.

He is the host of 2 popular podcasts “Healthy Births, Happy Babies” and “The Dadhood Journey,” where he shares real-life lessons and practical tools to support new dads in navigating their parenthood experience.

Dr. Jay has also created an online program, “Connecting with Baby” which guides pregnant women through processes to strengthen maternal bonding in-utero so that she is more confident as a parent and better able to soothe and connect with baby when they arrive.

In this episode, Dr. Jay shares all about the importance and benefits of prenatal bonding- developing a connection with your baby before they are born. He knows first-hand as a dad how beneficial this experience was and he is now supporting dads through his newly released podcast, “The Dadhood Journey.”

Dr. Jay shares ways that Dads can support their wives best during pregnancy and postpartum and how Dads can support themselves during this time too. (A topic that doesn’t seem to get enough attention.) He shares ways that dads can become more involved in the process and how families can set themselves for a happier and healthier start together.
