I’m Nicola and these are my two boys, Sebby and Isaac, both of which I never thought I would be able to conceive. I’m a fat-positive and feminist fertility coach (trained acupuncturist and naturopath too). I advocate for change in how fat women are treated on their fertility journey.
My journey started when I was 16. I suffered from irregular periods and was eventually diagnosed with PCOS. My doctor told me that I wouldn’t be able to have children. I spent my twenties with rock bottom self confidence believing that I would never get pregnant. But when I started trying for a family with my husband, it was easy, even through my cycles were 100+ days and I was fat.
You are in the right place if you are sick of being told that you have to lose weight in order to get pregnant and know in your gut that your body capable of incredible things right now.
