Here’s the list of articles I’ve either written or been featured in since I began blogging in 2008. I would love to do more freelancing or even speak as an advocate re: my DE journey/recovery/overcoming DE/body image issues related to pregnancy, post-pregnancy, and motherhood — so I’m always on the hunt for opportunities.
