The Appetite 85:

Body Image: Reflections on Infertility, Pregnancy, and Postpartum


Body Image can be a struggle at any time, but what about when you’ve had a baby? For the birthing person, one’s relationship to food and body can be vastly impacted by the perinatal experience. In a roundtable conversation, Opal: Food + Body Wisdom Co-Founders Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD, Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS, and Lexi Giblin, PhD, CEDS are sharing their (quite varied) experiences of pregnancy and being postpartum. As eating disorder experts, their stories serve as a reminder that everyone’s body and story is different. From the experience of infertility, the role of recovery during pregnancy, and thoughts on the “pre-baby body,” we’re jumping in!
