004: Embracing Your Postpartum Body


With Dr. Morgan Francis



Do you struggle with postpartum body acceptance? I know I have. Many women struggle with comparing their postpartum bodies to their pre baby bods. After three boys in three and a half years, a tummy full of stretch marks and a pelvis that doesn’t quite function the way it used to, I’ve had to relearn how to love parts of my body that seem foreign.  

With over 20 years in the mental health field, Dr. Francis is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. She is the founder and owner of Scottsdale Premier Counseling, a private practice in Scottsdale, Arizona providing individual, couples and group therapy. She specializes in the treatment of Body Image and Eating Disorders, Self Empowerment, Sexual Compulsive Behavior, Mood Disorders, Relationships, and Trauma. 

Today, Dr. Morgan Francis joins this episode to help us better understand body image and how we can learn to embrace our bodies. She explains that our value doesn’t come from our physical appearance and that there are ways we can learn to truly love and accept our body the way that it is in this very moment.
