Jenn is amazing and shares so much needed information for us plus size mamas. Almost everything out there on plus size pregnancy and birth is scary, Jenn and plus size birth is different! She gives us real information and real experiences so we know we aren’t alone and our bodies are capable of amazing things. This is exactly what we need to have in the world: wonderful people advocating for representation, access, and legitimate evidence based information instead of bias and fear tactics. Thank you Jenn!!

A Valuable Resource
I’m not much of a podcast person, but I knew I needed to listen to this Jan 17 episode with Dr. Shah. What a marvel to have a supportive voice speaking about the importance of collaborative care with a provider. People of every size deserve dignity in care and it’s amazing to even know there are providers out there and more importantly, that they’re willing to speak up! Thanks for bringing us this, Jen!
I love listening to Jen and following her. She is always so real and the information she gives is always so helpful in many ways.
