In this episode of Becoming Moms, Dr. Sterling shares a conversation she had with childbirth educator, Jen McLellan, on having an empowered plus size pregnancy. She is a wealth of knowledge to help question fatphobia in our culture and learn how it impacts prenatal care. Her mission to raise awareness and create change is as simple as it is profound; we need more compassion in our care for pregnant people in larger bodies. Listen in to learn about what aspects of the medical system needs to change and how to currently navigate a broken system when you have a plus size pregnancy.
Your body is just as incredible in pregnancy as anyone else. Follow Jen on Instagram to learn more! @plussizebirth
