Episode 3: Does my bump look big in this? Body image in pregnancy, with Siobhan Miller

Is there such a thing as the “perfect” baby bump? What happens if we’re told our bump is “too big” or “too small”? And what’s the secret to feeling good in our skin in that vulnerable newborn phase, when we’re often bombarded with messages about “snapping back”? All this and more is covered in the third episode of Body Cons, dedicated to all things pregnancy.

Molly and Lottie share their favourite and less favourite (mostly favourite this week, actually) things on the subject of body image on the telly and in magazines this week. Then join the pair on a trip to Exeter to meet this week’s guest Siobhan Miller from The Positive Birth Company
