Please remember that the views on this podcast and website are not meant to be substituted for medical advice, shouldn’t be used to diagnose, treat or cure any conditions, and are intended for general information purposes only.

Today we are excited to share our interview with Wes Pfiffner of Joovv. We discussed how specific types of light can support both partners in the preconception stage and postpartum! Wes is a member of Joovv’s leadership team. Joov is one of our incredible podcast partners who brings therapeutic red light therapy into your home for a fraction of the price!  In the episode, Wes breaks down the basics of light – how it works on a cellular level to optimize health. He shares how it can improve things like your skin (I’m looking at you wrinkles and stretch marks), mood (especially on days you can’t get outside), brain health (where are my keys again?), hormones and pain. If you’re skeptical about these devices, give it a listen. We think you’ll find this interview fascinating.


Topics Discussed: 

  • How red light therapy can optimize hormones for those TTC
  • How red light therapy can improve common postpartum concerns
  • Benefits of different types of light
  • A walkthrough of how to use the device
  • How Steph uses it with her family
