Fertility

Fertility support should be equally accessible for all bodies. There should be no barriers based on BMI.

The decisions around your fertility should be yours. No other authority should determine what healthcare options are available to you and make the decision as to which one is the most suitable.

You are worthy and deserving of becoming a parent and should be given all the support and help you need to achieve that dream.

Your weight does not determine how safe it is for you to get pregnant in your body. Where additional risks do exist, you should receive help in reducing and managing those risks without shame or weight loss.

 

Health

Health is not something that should be an obligation to pursue in order to receive appropriate and respectful care from health professionals.

Weight is non-modifiable (out of your control to change) and focusing on it to try to improve health and fertility can do more harm.

Weight stigma and hatred towards fat bodies has a significant negative impact on our health and healthcare providers need to create better systems to support fat people.

My work is grounded in the Health at Every Size (HAES) approach.

Every decision within your healthcare should have your informed consent.

Appropriate healthcare should be accessible to all. I take consistent positive action to ensure that my work is accesible to those in marginalised bodies – especially black people, queer people, trans people, indigenous people, non-binary people and brown people.

Working Together

 I make my work accessible in as many ways as I can – through my book, podcast interviews, blog and posts on Instagram.

20% of the spots in my programs are scholarship, trade or pay-what-you-can arrangements.

For every four full-price 1:1 coaching clients, I take on one coaching client for free.

I give 5% of my income to charities, causes or individuals. I’m committed to increasing this figure as my income increases.

I offer flexible payment plans for all with no extra fees added on top.

Business Practices

I use my business to create a microcosm of the world I want to see.

When I’m looking for additional support in my business, such as coaching, training, design, I prioritise hiring people in marginalised bodies.

When I’m asked to speak at events, I ensure that other marginalised groups are well represented, beyond tokenism.

I charge appropriately for my time and skills. I want to model how important it is to honour yourself. So often we, as carers, are expected to be selfless and give ourselves unconditionally to others without asking for anything in return. It is so important that together we start asking for a return on the physical and emotional labour we undertake for the people around us.

I aim to use tools and software in my business that align with these values and are created by or prioritise supporting those who identify as women, black people, queer people and those in other marginalised identities.
