This resource is dedicated to supporting Black plus size pregnant women with inspiring birth stories and evidence-based resources.
It’s time we support pregnancy for every body, stop the fear-mongering, and see real change in how plus size people are treated throughout maternity care!
Being plus size and pregnant means that most people won’t know you’re pregnant. You may feel like you’re having an invisible plus size pregnancy. Instead, you must take every advantage and opportunity to celebrate your pregnancy.
The night before I got the positive pregnancy test, I had a dream. A little boy with brown hair, waiting calmly. This is my birth center birth story!
Dear Plus Size Mom: I am guilty of dreading our time together doing fetal monitoring. I am guilty for thinking about your weight before thinking about your pregnancy. And I am sorry.
