Hi! I’m Jen McLellan
On August 24, 2010, my life was forever changed by the birth of my son. On that day I not only became a mother but also developed a whole new love for my body.
After I settled into motherhood or Mommy Land as I like to call it, I had a deep desire to help other plus size women during pregnancy and birth. In April of 2011, I started my blog, Plus Mommy, because I wanted to share my story and tips that helped me have a healthy pregnancy and transformative natural childbirth. I started a Facebook page to promote my blog. Within a month it became a community of women supporting one another before, during, and after pregnancy. It was incredible!
Flash forward a few years and I’m now a published author, certified childbirth educator, public speaker, and voice behind the Plus Mommy Podcast. I’m so happy to be pursuing my passion of helping others!
When I’m not blogging or working on Plus Size Birth you can find me laughing with my boys.
