The Mom Bod Series
We want our Mom listeners to find body peace through education about your genes and learning what it means to treat your body (and jeans) with kindness. So, while we often discuss the lack of control we have with our genetics on this podcast, today we are going to talk about an area that you actually do have control over.
Here at Mom Genes, we believe that you have a choice in how you treat your body. We discuss what “body kindness” means to both of us podcast hosts professionally and personally and we interview Rebecca Scritchfield, author of the book “Body Kindness.” She discusses many areas of how to be kind to your body in a diet culture driven world, acknowledges obstacles to body kindness based on privilege and access to resources, and offers comfort to the Mom’s who may be struggling with body kindness due to feeling their body has betrayed them. Rebecca gives specific examples on how to make the choice to have a better relationship with our bodies so that we can pass along body positivity to our children. As Mom’s, our children do not have the choice of how we talk to ourselves or treat our bodies but if we can give our children the gift of raising them in an affirmative body environment then we can create a strong future for them.
