Helping fat folks navigate getting pregnant in a weight-obsessed world
You deserve to feel support and cared for whilst navigating getting pregnant – not shamed into losing weight based on non-evidence based practices.
Ready to grow your family without dieting and fat shaming?
I never thought I would be able to conceive
At 16 I suffered from irregular periods and after pushing my doctor for help, I diagnosed with PCOS. My doctor told me that I wouldn’t be able to have children and 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 though my cycles were 100+ days and I was fat.
Now, I get to support fat folks every day as a fat-positive fertility coach. I advocate for change in how fat people are treated on their fertility journey and get to be a parent to these two cheeky monkeys – Sebby and Isaac.
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 is capable of incredible things right now.
Are you questioning if you can even get pregnant in a bigger body?
Do you need some research to back up your advocacy for fertility care?
Are you looking for some support to help you navigate getting pregnant?
