The only words you should ever say to a pregnant woman…
1. Back-up: If SHE did not tell you she’s pregnant. You say nothing. NOTHING.
2. If pregnancy IS confirmed, (like she told you she was pregnant – it came out of her mouth) the only thing you say is..
You look amazing!!
You look so good!
You do not comment on her size.
You do not compare her to someone else. Or a previous pregnancy of hers, yours, or others.
You do not ask if there are two in there.
You do not look at her belly and ask if she’s due soon.
You do not make a joke about her weight or weight gain.
“You look strong!
You’re an incredible mama already.”
And if she’s having a hard day…
“You have a good body. Your body was made for this. You’re doing good work.”
Share with a mama who needs to hear that she’s beautiful today! And if you want to work with a provider who’s only going to give you positive affirmation…I’d love to see you – in person, virtually, or through my online courses and membership.
This is a no-shame zone. You have a good body. End of story
