Tharseo is partnering with Blue Lace Doula Care (in Edmonton!) for an informative workshop on diversity and inclusivity.

You will learn about:
~ definitions of gender and sexual diversity
~ inclusive language and why it matters
~ the realities many folks face when trying to access inclusive care providers and services
~ how you as a doula and birthworker may better support your LGBTQIA2S clients with local resources

If you are a birth or postpartum doula, birth or newborn photographer, childbirth educator, offer lactation support, encapsulate placentas, are an L&D nurse, OB/GYN, or midwife, or otherwise work in the field of pregnancy, birth, or postpartum care, this workshop will be of benefit to you and your clients.
