The decades-long war on “obesity” has fundamentally altered the Canadian medical industry. Reproductive health care clinics maintain arbitrary weight-based restrictions for their services, severely limiting the options fat people have for family planning. Baby Weight explores how the institutional and structural barriers fat people face when seeking fertility treatments, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), impact how we think and talk about who deserves to be a parent.
