How do you want fat folks to feel when they come to your clinic?

 

☞ How can you ensure they don't feel excluded or judged?

 

☞ Does recommending weight loss do more harm than good?

 

The likelihood is that when a fat person comes to you, they are terrified about how you will treat them and their body.

This isn’t anything you’ve done, but comes from years of being judged and shamed by their healthcare professionals.

These new courses taught by Fat Positive Fertility Expert Nicola Salmon will help you build an inclusive and welcoming practice for anyone in a bigger body.

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 we treat fat folks has been shown time and time again in research to be the cause of poorer health outcomes and higher health risks in fat folks.
