Fat Positive Fertility with Nicola Salmon

I’m so excited to share my conversation with Nicola Salmon today. She is a fertility coach and activist for better fertility care for people of size. I’ve been following her work for a few years now - I first heard her on Amanda Laird’s podcast called Heavy Flow - obviously all about menstrual health and periods. I was so inspired by her passion for advocacy for a high level of health care at all sizes.


Today we are going to dive into some important topics around Fat Positive Fertility such as:


  • Some of the common myths surrounding fertility for fat folks
  • What the research says (and what it doesn’t say)
  • Why weight loss and dieting is not helpful
  • What people can do instead to help their fertility process
  • How people can advocate for better care.
  • Any much more


Nicola’s professional bio:

She helps fat folks navigate getting pregnant in a weight-obsessed world and advocates for change in how fat people are treated whilst accessing help with their fertility.


Nicola uses her unique fat positive framework to support people in finding their own version of health without diets, advocate for their bodies, relearn how to trust their body and believe in their ability to get pregnant.
