Plus Size Babywearing And Postpartum Support Tips For EveryBODY | 7

When it comes to babywearing, there’s a misconception that plus size babywearing options don’t exist. The reality is carrier companies are far more inclusive than most maternity clothing companies. There are babywearing options for people of all sizes!

Babywearing is just one small piece of helping to set yourself up for postpartum. Planning for postpartum success is critical at this time in your life that can feel very isolating.

Laura Brown is a babywearing expert and postpartum doula. She’s our special guest during this episode! We talk not only about plus size babywearing but how to set yourself up for the postpartum period.

We laugh about the realities of parenthood and address the real need for more postpartum support in our society.

Part One: Talking To My Mom About Plus Size Pregnancy And Motherhood | 2

Ever wonder what being plus size and pregnant was like nearly 40 years ago? What about body image issues? In this episode of the Plus Mommy Podcast, I brought the woman who gave me life on as my very first guest to talk about it all!

When I dreamed up the Plus Mommy Podcast, I knew I wanted my mother, Kathryn Rue, to be my first guest. We have a special bond and I know how lucky I am to be able to say that. Talking to my mom about plus size pregnancy and motherhood was a fascinating experience and a lot of great wisdom came out of this episode.

My mom not only talks about pregnancy and body image but reiterates the messages we hear today about the importance of building a strong community of support throughout motherhood. I hope you’ll enjoy this episode as much as I’ll cherish having this recording for the rest of my life.
