Preconception and Pregnancy: How to Help Prevent Autism (Chiropractic Continuing Ed Track registrants only)

We all want to know what we can do to have the healthiest, happiest kids, and a lot of what we can do to ensure that happens before conception. 
Multiple factors play a role in increasing the chances of a neurodevelopmental disorder, and taking the time to do some extra testing and work with mom and dad prior to them starting a family will not only boost conception chances, but also set the stage for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Marcia Schaefer, DC

 Marcia Schaefer, DC grew up in Wisconsin and obtained her Bachelor's degree in Biology before attending Palmer College of Chiropractic to obtain her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2010. While studying at Palmer, she could not help but question if there was more to the big picture, and became trained in Holistic Nutrition. It's not every day you get to test the principles that you were trained in, but shortly after graduating chiropractic college, a potential death sentence was put upon her and she decided to put salutogenic principles to work.

Her experiences created a determination and passion to empower and educate others to care more about their internal environment of their being instead of the label handed to them. Through her experiences, her deepest passion is shifting the epigenetic health status of future generations, starting with preconception. Empowering healthy families from fertility forward is her mission, and transforming the way people look at health and wellness for the benefit of our future generations. She currently teaches for the ICPA and resides in Wisconsin with her husband and son.
