Welcome to episode 16 of Inside Out by Amber. The podcast where I get to chat about poo and life with bowel issues or stoma bags with a range of wonderful guests.
In this episode, I chat to the wonderful Natalie Amber all about the modelling industry, body positivity, self-love, awareness and more in relation to her journey with Crohn’s Disease, life with a stoma and post-reversal.
WHY I WANTED TO CHAT TO NATALIE AMBER?
As I mention in the episode, I first discovered Natalie Amber’s story when I came across her modelling in an advertisement for the National Lottery – following her further over the years, I’ve taken so much inspiration from and been touched by her story along with all of her work, there were so many things that I wanted to chat to her about, uncover and share.
WHAT DO WE DISCUSS?
Just some of the things that Natalie Amber discusses in this episode are her journey with Crohn’s Disease, a temporary stoma and reversal surgery, her career as a model and a dancer as well as other aspects of her journey that she’s worked on not only to develop her own mindset and attitude but, to help others with theirs too such as body positivity, self-love and all of that good stuff! She also touches on relationships, female empowerment, mental health and her views on disability representation and awareness.
In the episode, Natalie Amber also provides an abundance of useful recommendations, tips & tricks for gratitude, self-love, acceptance and body confidence.

NATALIE AMBER’S POO STORY;
Midway through the episode, not only does Natalie Amber share one poo story with us but… three occasions where she hasn’t quite made it and how she’s overcome those situations!
A QUESTION FROM THE COMMUNITY
Our question from the community this week for Natalie Amber in which she answers extremely openly is; ‘Have you ever sought help with regards to your mental health throughout your journey and if so, would you recommend it?’
