This event is hosted on the Lkwungen Territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.
Families come in many forms. It is a responsibility of perinatal care providers to adapt to meet the needs of all parents-to-be in dignified and affirming ways. While many people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences will share hopes and worries about pregnancy and parenting, transgender, queer, and Two-Spirit parents may have some needs and desires that are unique to their gender and sexual identities.
Join Katie McNiven Gladman (Registered Midwife, IBCLC) and Kingsley Strudwick (founder of Ambit Gender Diversity Consulting) for an evening of education and skill-building to better support transgender, queer, and Two-Spirit people as they embark into parenthood.
This workshop is geared towards perinatal care providers (midwives, doulas, lactation consultants, nurses, doctors, ob-gyns), but if you are in other realms of healthcare and feel this workshop would be the right fit for you, you are welcome to register! Feel free to touch base with Kingsley with any questions about this session.
Capacity is limited to 30 people – register early through the ticket link to reserve your spot!
