Nicola is a fat-positive fertility coach, acupuncturist and author of “Fat and Fertile”.

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.

We discuss topics including:

  • What is a fertility coach?
  • The advice Nicola would give to women
  • How Nicola teaches people to advocate for themselves
  • Weight stigma and fertility tools
  • Nicola’s mission on educating other providers regarding people in larger bodies going through fertility
