Welcome to Your Plus-Size Pregnancy, a complete resource for curvy moms.
Whether you’re pregnant, trying to conceive, nursing, or already a parent, this site is here to support, inform you, and celebrate you.
50% of women ages 25 to 55 are plus-size, according to the CDC, so women in this group make up a significant percent of all moms, yet there is very little information, support, or resources for plus-size moms. If you’re plus-sized, you already know how hard it is to find clothes that fit and feel good, and to find a health care provider who treats you with respect. You know how hard it is to keep up your self-esteem and deal with weight. These difficulties are compounded by pregnancy, trying to conceive or nursing. But they shouldn’t be.
Your pregnancy is a wonderful, magical time in your life. Every pregnant woman deserves to enjoy this time in her life, to feel good about herself, and to appreciate the beautiful changes to her body. Unfortunately a lot of plus-size moms find that their health care providers approach their situation negatively, that maternity stores don’t carry plus-sizes, and that all the information that is out there about plus-size pregnancies is focused on the dangers and horrors of the situation. In reality, plus-size moms can and do have happy and healthy pregnancies and raise perfect, amazing babies.
