Our Story

In April of 2011, Jen McLellan launched the Plus Size Mommy Memoirs (now called Plus Mommy) blog, housed within the Plus Size Birth website.

Plus Size Birth is an award-winning blog, which has received over six million page views. This blog focuses on topics ranging from plus size pregnancy to birth, body positivity to motherhood.

The Plus Mommy Facebook page exploded overnight and brought together thousands of plus size women of all walks of life.

After blogging for seven years Jen felt a desire to try something new. She wanted to deeper explore topics surrounding motherhood and body image.

The Plus Size Birth website is now focused on conception, pregnancy and postpartum for plus size people. Whereas the Plus Mommy website and podcast hones in on motherhood and body love, while still sharing stories and resources around plus size Pregnancy.
