Navigating getting pregnant in a bigger body can feel hard but unfortunately the potential stigma around being in a bigger body doesn’t stop once you are pregnant.

Here are some of my favourite resources for navigating pregnancy with a higher BMI.


  • Jen McLellan @plusmommy runs the brilliant websites Plus Mommy and Plus Size Birth. They also have a useful guide called My Plus Size Pregnancy Guide  (This is an affiliate link which means that at no cost to you, I may receive a small commission for recommending this product)


  • Big Birthas are a UK organisation run by Amber Marshall, providing evidence based support around pregnancy and birthing at a higher BMI. They also have a useful facebook group.


  • Emma Ashworth has a really great Instagram account to follow around Birth Rights within the UK
