One of the most useful tools you can have when you want to access fertility care in a bigger body is research.
Helping your mental health around getting pregnant in a bigger body
Having conversations with your partner, friends and family who may be overstepping boundaries around your body
Initiating conversations with drs about accessing fertility care
Making complaints to systems that have stopped you receiving the care you deserve.
But here is the thing about research. It’s difficult to find, difficult to interpret and often filled with anti-fat bias that is triggering to read as a fat person who wants to get pregnant.
So I’ve done the research for you and created a research summary you can use to support you in advocating for yourself with healthcare professionals.
It summarises and references seven research studies that explore why fat folks should receive support with their fertility.
