This course is something really special. There's SO MUCH information out there on pregnancy, birth, and mothering, and I'm an information fanatic - it's driving me crazy that I won't be able to read and watch and listen to even a tiny fraction of all the great information that's out there. And yet I find I cannot stop listening to the Plus Size Birth Course modules over and over again. They're inspiring, candid, informative, and empowering. I have the modules downloaded on my phone so I can listen any time. Module 12, "Your Body Isn't Broken", is my absolute favorite, and I've taken to playing it on repeat in my ear while I'm just going about my day - it's become like a mantra. My body is amazing! And for the first time, I'm looking forward to experiencing what my body will be like in pregnancy.
