Episode 2: Katie Crenshaw – Founder of Her Body Can; How to Communicate Self-love and Body Positivity to our Kids

Katie Crenshaw joins us to talk about Body neutrality and ways to talk with our kids about having a healthy body image. Katie is the Mother of three and has a great message for post partum Mother’s who are questioning how their body is “supposed” to look and a message for the parent trying to create a healthy environment around the topic of body image in their home.
