Fat-positive fertility coach and author Nicola Salmon joins us to discuss common myths about fertility, food, and weight; how to advocate for your health needs; the real reason why IVF clinics have BMI cutoffs; tips for preparing for pregnancy if you’re in a larger body; and so much more. Plus, Christy answers a listener question about how to handle being in charge of family food shopping and preparation during COVID-19, while navigating eating-disorder triggers like food scarcity and orthorexic messages.

Nicola is a fat-positive and feminist fertility coach and author of Fat and Fertile. She advocates for change in how fat people are treated by the healthcare system when they want to get pregnant and access fertility treatment. Nicola supports fat people who want to get pregnant using her unique FAT+ve fertility framework to find their own version of health without diets, advocate for their bodies, relearn how to trust their body and believe in their ability to get pregnant in their current body.
