The day my son was born I not only became a mother but also developed a deep love for my body. After settling into motherhood I wanted to empower women find the strength and beauty within their bodies.
In April of 2011 I launched the Plus Size Mommy Memoirs blog, to help women navigate the world of plus size pregnancy, share tips for body love, and laugh along with the adventures of motherhood. My work has been featured in major publications such as Huffington Post, Everyday Feminism, and International Doula.
I’ve built a Facebook community of over 169,000 plus size women supporting one another before, during, and after pregnancy.
In early 2014 I became certified as a childbirth educator. My background in non-profit management and patient advocacy has enabled me to have a strong voice for women of size during pregnancy and childbirth. I share my message via speaking engagements and I’m excited to be rolling out classes in 2015. Be sure to signup for the Plus Size Birth e-newsletter to be kept up-to-date on exciting new developments.
I hope you enjoy exploring my website and you can contact me anytime!
