- Ways to feel good about yourself and celebrate your pregnancy
- How to find a health care provider who will support you and help you feel good about yourself
- Where to find maternity clothes and how to choose flattering styles

- The impact of conditions such as PCOS and diabetes on pregnancy
- Understanding medical terms and how to interpret studies about weight and pregnancy
- Keeping your partner involved in your pregnancy
- Finding childbirth classes where you are comfortable

Each chapter contains quotes from real plus-size moms about their personal experiences with every aspect of pregnancy, nursing, and postpartum care.

Written by experts, Your Plus-Size Pregnancy is the result of a collaboration between a plus-size mom of two who is a pregnancy and parenting writer and a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist who is experienced in working with plus-size moms.
