Getting pregnant in a fat body should be the same as getting pregnant in any other body but in our culture our fat bodies have been demonised.
From a young age we are conditioned to believe that our bodies are wrong and that we must do everything in our power to make them smaller.
When you have been told over and over that getting pregnant in a fat body is hard, you start to believe it.
When you have been shamed at your doctors too many times to count, you avoid going to see healthcare professionals as much as you can.
When you have spent years of your life torturing yourself with restrictive dieting and gruelling exercise regimens, it impacts your health.
If you are in a fat body, you experience very different challenges when you want to get pregnant.
You need a very different approach.
Which is why I created the FAT+ve framework.
The Fat Positive Framework
I designed the FAT+ve framework to give you the tools to face the challenges of getting pregnant in a fat body.
