Body image during pregnancy and after having a baby is not something that just affects someone who was previously anorexic or struggled with their weight. Body image applies to anyone who is pregnant. I have yet to meet anyone who was confident about all of the physical changes going on during pregnancy. That doesn’t mean those people do not exist, but that definitely isn’t the majority. The many physical and emotional changes that come with carrying a baby puts your body through a major transformation. These changes are necessary to have a healthy baby. It is impossible to create a new life without going through a major transformation. This episode prepares you for what body changes to expect during pregnancy, what influences our body image, the research on body image, and evidence based interventions to improve it.
