This study examines the experiences of women and transpeople who have been called “obese” and their interactions with healthcare providers while they are attempting to become pregnant. We are interested in learning about people's relationships with family doctors, nurses, gynecologists, midwives, and/or fertility specialists throughout all stages of attempting to become pregnant. We are also interested in talking to healthcare professionals who deliver that care, as well as to policy makers, to better understand and contextualize the care that larger people are receiving.
