There is insufficient research on the intersection of eating disorders with fertility and pregnancy issues, yet research has shown that 20.7% of patients struggling with infertility have had an eating disorder.
Psychotherapy with this population can reveal shame rooted in unexpected difficulties in conception, pregnancy or early motherhood. The lack of open discussion around these topics increases internalized judgment and self-criticism.
This book focuses on issues arising from challenges conceiving, sustaining a healthy pregnancy, and mother-child bonding in women who have had or currently have an eating disorder.
Discussion examines research linking the presence of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or binge eating disorder to fertility issues and experiential exercises exploring how to process this with clients will be outlined. The author shares some personal experiences from her own life and case studies to highlight the depth of these struggles. This book is the only comprehensive guide to addressing, working with, and healing from emotional struggles related to fertility and eating disorders.
