Conceiving A Healthy Recovery: Exploring the Connection Between Eating Disorders and Shame Related to Fertility, Pregnancy and Postpartum Recovery

by Kate Daigle, LPC, CEDS, author of The Clinical Guide to Fertility, Motherhood and Eating Disorders: From Shame to SelfAcceptance

Eating disorders affect more than 30 million women and men in the United States and yet so often they live beneath the surface, churning in silence and secrecy. The emotional, psychological and physical impact from anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder, or a mixture of these disorders is severe and can cause feelings of shame to surface. For many women with an eating disorder, the desire to have a family is a strong motivation to pursue recovery, and yet even in full recovery many women are struggling with infertility. Concurrently, many women with current eating disorders are getting pregnant intentionally and unintentionally, posing harm to herself and her child. This presentation will explore the lived experience of numerous women and men who have walked the journey of eating disorders, fertility and parenthood while delving into research looking at the medical complications that can affect fertility, attachment, the experience of shame, and adjustment to the postpartum period. Clinical tools are offered for therapists to use who support clients in these populations to find healing and self-acceptance, and insight into how the medical community can help these clients from a weight and body neutral perspective is offered.

Learning objectives:

1. To understand the complex intersection of eating disorders with fertility, pregnancy and postpartum in medical, psychosocial & developmental capacities.

2. To gain several clinical tools that therapists other medical professionals can use with clients to reduce shame and increase body awareness.

3. To identify the barriers that prevent the medical community from providing weight neutral, comprehensive and compassionate care to patients experiencing infertility and/or eating disorders.

*1.5 CE available (To receive CE credit, please be prepared to provide your license number at sign-in on the day of the event.)
