Catie Lynch Shockey, LCSW is an eating disorder and body image therapist located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She is a licensed clinical social worker who graduated from Sewanee: The University of the South and Tulane University. After recovering from her own eating disorder, Catie began to specialize in eating disorders and body image concerns. She is a mother of two girls—a two year old and an infant. Having girls has made dismantling diet culture and creating peace around food even more important to Catie. Catie joined Paige to talk about pregnancy and postpartum body image. They discuss what the struggles are, why it's important to work on body image at any phase of parenthood (aka it's not too late wherever you are right now!), and some practical ideas to work toward more peace with your body.
