Fat Positive Provider Workshops
Are you a birthworker, chiropractor, physical therapist working with pregnant folks? Not sure where you’re at on the fat positive scale? Get our Fat Positive Provider model and the foundations of fat positive care.
Big Fat Pregnancy believes in fat positive care for all. We provide direct inclusive care for clients as they navigate pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We know that clients are just one piece of the puzzle and they alone not responsible for fixing their providers bias.
With this dream, we created the Fat Positive Provider Workshop. A three-hour intensive workshop to unpack weight bias, understand Big Fat Pregnancy’s Fat Positive Provider model, and learn some basics when working with folks in larger bodies.
To set the foundation for the workshop, you’ll have access to two short pre-recorded lessons to explore the foundations of what we believe are essential components to size inclusive care.
Have a negative encounter with a doctor or something a family member said just didn’t sit right? Facing weight stigma while pregnant at work?
This service is right for you if you need to process specific interactions, encounters, conversations or topics with dedicated 1:1 time with Christina. You’ll leave feeling confident to handle the current situation!
Sessions can be booked in 60 minute increments and can take place via phone, zoom, or in-person.

Child Birth Classes
Traditional childbirth education classes are boring and often only serve the narrative of a thin, cis, straight, white married couples. This leaves gaps in knowledge and satisfaction and can lead to poor retention of information.
Big Fat Pregnancy’s childbirth educators both come from a background in adult education and provide inclusive childbirth education focusing on the choices available to you, advocacy and decision-making skills, and help you mentally prepare for the childbirth journey.
We use interaction and hands on teaching methods randing from discussion, meditations, journaling, visualizations, art, dialogue, time with your support person(s) and more!
Postpartum doulas help parents build confidence with new skills, allow for much needed rest, and share the tips and tricks to care for baby and the new postpartum family.
Big Fat Pregnancy tailors each visit to your needs in that moment. Shifts can include direct newborn care so parent(s) or support person(s) can rest, newborn education, parent care, light housework, meal prep, and more!
We understand that parents often have a multitude of questions, concerns, and a strong desire for personalized support. That’s why we’ve tailored this package to offer an extensive range of prenatal and postpartum visits, ensuring you receive the care and knowledge you need to navigate this incredible journey with confidence.
Big Fat Pregnancy provides doula care that focuses on supporting you consistently from the time you hire us until after your baby is earthside. We operate from fat-positive, trauma informed, and evidence-based lenses and welcome all family structures, races, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, and abilities. We work with folks to create an environment where their unique personhood is welcomed and affirmed.
Our goal is to meet you where you are on your journey to parenthood and provide individualized care and mentorship to prepare you for the road ahead.
This has endless opportunities, but most commonly birth mentoring includes fact finding, guidance and support, and holding space for you to show up exactly where you are in your pregnancy.
It’s like having a fat best friend who happens to have a huge toolbox and is dedicated to your most confidence, empowered, and enjoyable pregnancy!
