Gender & Sexual Diversity Workshop for Doulas and Birthworkers (YEG)

  • Millwoods Public Health Centre 7525 38 Avenue Northwest Edmonton, AB, T6K 3X9 Canada (map)

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
