Is This Fatphobia?
Content warning: This post talks about weight, body image, and disordered eating. I weighed myself today. I haven't done this too often...
We HAVE to have this conversation!
Everything I know about pregnancy and being a mom, I learned from White women who write books and blogs about pregnancy and being a mom. When I google Black women and pregnancy, I'm flooded with information about the risks due to racism and underlying health issues that disproportionately affect Black women. Where's the joy and representation of health? Or more simply, where are the spaces where Black women can tell their mama stories fully and truthfully? This blog is for us, and it's also for women who want to change the narrative and reject the status quo. xo, Ash
