Including LGBTQ Families in your Childbirth Ed Course
Childbirth educators are often challenged to find ways to meet the needs of LGBTQ families in the classroom. This presentation offers an in-depth understanding of what is required to truly hold space for LGBTQ families. Concepts of sexual orientation and gender identity are explained in relation to the transformative experience of becoming a parent. A detailed outline is provided for protecting LGBTQ families against marginalization in the classroom, from advertising and communication with class participants to course materials and the physical classroom space. An exploration of gender inclusive language is included, so that childbirth educators can uniformly discuss pregnancy, birth and infant feeding in ways that are inclusive of new parents of all genders, orientations and family structures. For those who wish to teach specialized classes for LGBTQ families, additional aspects that arise in an exclusive space will be presented.
