Lines, Tummies, & Babies, OH MY!
How to Develop a Healthy Body Image After Baby

The pregnancy experience can take a woman’s body on both a physical and emotional roller coaster ride. Developing a positive body image after baby is less about how you look and more about how you feel about yourself. Learn more about how to embrace your new postpartum body through Lines, Tummies, and Babies, OH MY!: How to Develop a Healthy Body Image After Baby presented by Nicole S. Wildes, MA, counselor and owner of Wishful Living Counseling Services, LLC. Participants will:

•  Understand the role expectations play in how women adjust to their post partum bodies.

•  Develop tools and techniques to counter body bashing.

•  Learn how to celebrate a post-partum body (yes, it’s possible!) and model healthy body image to your little ones.

•  Recognize the role a healthy body image plays in helping to reach one’s natural body weight.

Target Audience: Mom’s and Mom’s-to-be (and Dad’s too!)

Does My Awesome-ness Make Me Look Fat?
How to love your body and yourself in our weight obsessed culture.

More than ever, our little girls, ‘tweens and teens need an army of tools to help them combat the body bully within. This program strives to empower girls to see beyond the cultural expectations and start to question the media’s influence of beauty. Girls who exhibit signs of self-love have more energy to invest in leadership, athletic, and educational opportunities and are less derailed by the day-to-day drama of adolescence.  

Participants will:

·    Understand that how their body looks is not a reflection of its worth or capabilities.

·    Recognize that self-love is a major tool in treating their body with respect and kindness.

·    Gain awareness and education by understanding the impact puberty has on body size and shape.

·    Question, dissect, and analyze the media’s expectations of thinness.

·    Consider all the other ways they matter and are important beyond the size and shape of their body.  

Target Audience:

Program can be modified to meet the needs of a parent audience, parent and daughter audience, or a school age group (elementary through high school).
