Greetings, lovely souls! Today, I’m excited to explore a subject that is the foundation of the work we do here at Big Fat Pregnancy: Size inclusive doula work! We want the world to know the positive impact hiring a size inclusive doula who genuinely comprehends and uplifts your one-of-a-kind journey can be!
Let’s dive into a topic that many of us have encountered, either personally or through the stories of friends and family: body shaming and unsolicited advice, especially during pregnancy. It’s unfortunate that in a time of such wonder and anticipation, some individuals feel the need to impose their opinions on others. But fear not, for we’re here to explore how to navigate these waters while prioritizing your own well-being and self-esteem.
Hey there, my marvelous readers! Today, we’re diving into a topic that’s not just about respecting size diversity, but also about challenging the systems that keep anti-fat bias alive and well – it’s Health at Every Size®, or HAES® for short.
Let’s embark on a journey of empowerment and self-discovery – because guess what? Pregnancy isn’t just about cravings and baby kicks. It’s also a time to step into your own power and advocate for yourself, and we at Big Fat Pregnancy believe this can be done all while embracing the Health at Every Size® (HAES®) perspective. So, grab a cozy blanket and a cup of soothing tea, and let’s dive into the art of self-advocacy during pregnancy!
