Hello lovely

I’m Nicola. 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.

•find peace with their body,
•find their own version of health
•and finally escape the yo-yo dieting cycle.
