Inclusive Midwifery Care: Providing Safe, Respectful and Celebratory Care to Our Trans and Non-Binary Families
Midwives are well situated to provide inclusive care to our trans and non-binary clients and families. Our grounding in client-centred care, informed choice and choice of birth place are an asset when caring for pregnant people and their families who may have experienced discrimination in the health care system and in society in general. Expertise in trauma informed care can be utilized and broadened to a focus on trans informed care to facilitate safe, respectful and celebratory pregnancy, birth and postpartum care. This talk will explore how to build inclusive practices and philosophies of care. This will allow for a deeper conversation around safety for our clients as well as for midwives and other health care providers.
