The Mom Bod Series

We wanted to dedicate a short episode to our listeners to say a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts and send you into summer with a massive cheer: WEAR THE BATHING SUIT!!

We know that most of the body positive, “wear the bathing suit” advocates are usually white women in thinner bodies - and that is not exactly helpful or reassuring for the vast majority of people who are living in marginalized bodies in a judgemental world. The reason why we still encourage bathing suit wearing, joyful moving, community gathering summer activities is because being connected to our bodies and each other is where true freedom in life lies. It is a privilege to enjoy activities that require bathing suits, so keeping our privileges in mind will help keep perspective when diet culture and societal norms start screaming otherwise.

In this week’s episode we share the definition of body liberation by Jes Baker @themilitantbaker and give 3 quick tips to help Mom’s enter summer with body liberation.

Our last takeaway challenge for you is this: put on the suit, enjoy your family, and take the photo. Please don’t forget to tag us on social media (oh and use one of our fun GIF’s by searching for “Mom Genes” in the search bar) and share an episode with a friend to keep the love (and listens) flowing this summer!

Wear the jeans, love the genes!
