I'll be presenting lots of facts and figures and discussing research studies, but I'm also there to represent the voice of consumers, specifically of women of size.
So what in particular do you think is most important for these caregivers to know about caring for women of size? How do you want to be treated? How do you not want to be treated?
How should caregivers responsibly discuss risk with women of size? How can they improve outcomes in women of size? What do you most wish you could say to your own caregivers about the care you received during your pregnancies (or if you were to have one)? About your gynecological care? What constitutes good care in women of size?
This is an open thread; please feel free to add your comments. However, remember that caregivers will be reading this thread in the future and we want to promote constructive dialogue about improving care in women of size. Please keep comments constructive and helpful, even as you make the points you feel need to be made.
I hope this will generate some interesting dialogue and give some thought-provoking feedback to caregivers.
*P.S. Logistical note: For those who asked.....by no means am I done with the PCOS series. It just went on hiatus for a bit while I worked on some major deadlines on other projects. It will be a periodic series. Stay tuned!
