The desire to become a mom can be a motivating factor in eating disorder recovery. However, little people know how much pregnancy and the postpartum period mirror the early stages of recovery. Both pregnant and new mothers and women recovering from eating disorders experience anxiety, body image distress, difficulty sleeping, hormonal changes, appetite changes, and ambivalence/excitement/distress around cultivating a new identity. In this episode of The Recovery Warrior Show, expert Dr. Linda Shanti shares personal and professional stories of recovering from an eating disorder and entering into motherhood. Listen in regardless of where you are at in the biological cycle because there is lots to learn.

What You'll Learn:

• Why people don't talk about miscarriages
• How pregnancy is similar to early stages of recovery
• Why you need to be proactive in seeking professional help before having a baby?
• Why how a mother eats affects her child
• Is there a right time to have a kid
