While we would like to promote exercise and good nutrition, we do so with the understanding that health is not synonymous with thin, and good health happens at all sizes! We will not focus on weight loss here.

We would like to encourage and enlighten women of size. Casting off the misconceptions based on bias and judgement in order to achieve the best pregnancy, birth and journey into motherhood that one can have....
