When you’re plus size and pregnant it’s easy to feel invisible since the outside world can’t tell you’re growing life within you. Mia joins the podcast to share her plus size pregnancy struggles and journey to finding self-love during pregnancy.
“Pregnancy gave me a great gift of teaching me how to take care of myself through love.”
Mia’s guest post on the Plus Size Birth website, My Invisible Plus Size Pregnancy, perfectly expresses what it’s like to have plus size pregnancy struggles.
She goes deeper into these obstacles as well as how she treats her body with kindness in this 6h episode of the Plus Mommy Podcast.
Mia also emphasizes the importance of connecting with a size-friendly care provider and opens up about postpartum.
For anyone who has experienced a plus size pregnancy or is about you, you’ll relate to everything Mia shares!
