experience inclusive & informed doula care

The unique strengths of doula care benefit not only cisgender hetereo couples but are also extremely advantageous to the LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, fat and other marginilzed communities including the diasbled community through fertility, pregnancy and parenting support, guidance and education. All parents must navigate fertility and parentage in a system that is not always knowledgeable, accepting or affirming of those outside of the cisgender heterosexual identities, those living in larger bodies or those navigating chronic illness while pregnant.

Birth Mentoring

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!

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 certified doulas and 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!

Provider Workshop

In our doula partnership, we believe 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.
