Tharseo is partnering with Blue Lace Doula Care (in Edmonton!) for an informative workshop on diversity and inclusivity.
This half-day workshop will introduce you to the barriers that LGBTQIA2S folks experience when navigating the health care system, with a focus on perinatal care.
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.
**DONA International contact hours are pending for this workshop**
Cost is $75/participant
