Healthcare systems regularly fail people in bigger bodies, especially when it comes to fertility

 

Would you like to know how...

 

☞ You can help your fat clients to ensure they get the best care?

 

☞ You can be an ally by understanding how fatphobia pervades in Western society and culture?

 

☞ You can use your skills as a practitioner to look past the dogma around body fat in your healthcare discipline?

 

The likelihood is that when a fat person comes to you, they have experienced shame and dismissal at the hands of healthcare providers throughout their life.

It is often difficult for practitioners - especially those who are not fat - to appreciate how years of this conscious and unconscious bias can have a hidden impact on fertility issues.

These new courses taught by Fat Positive Fertility Expert Nicola Salmon will help you realise your desire to have an inclusive and welcoming practice that can use scientific fact to help people in bigger bodies to become parents.

Research shows that people with a higher BMI have poorer outcomes and risks associated with their health...

But it’s not for the reason you might think!

  • Fat folks routinely have shorter appointment times with their healthcare providers

  • Fat folks are routinely denied fertility tests and treatments 

  • Assumptions are made about fat folks' health without questioning and appropriate testing.

  • Fat folks are commonly shamed and judged by healthcare providers based on their body.

Weight Stigma:

The way that fat folks are treated by healthcare systems has been shown time and time again in research to be the cause of poorer health outcomes and higher health risks in fat folks.
