Those who are plus-sized often face a lot of judgment and shame from obstetrical providers. They are made to feel undeserving of the same compassionate medical care that smaller people get. They are automatically labeled as "high risk" even if they have no other risk factors other than their size. Jen McLellan is a published author, founder of Plus Size Birth, and host of the Plus Mommy Podcast. She helps people navigate the world of plus size pregnancy, shares tips for embracing your body, and laughs her way through the adventures of parenthood. Her work has been featured in major publications such as The New York Times, Glamour, Today's Parent, Huffington Post, and International Doula. As a public speaker, Jen has spoken at numerous events, including presenting at the National Institutes of Health. Jen is also a certified childbirth educator, wife, and mother to a charismatic eleven-year-old.
