Gender, Sex, and Midwifery, Oh My! Creating a Gender Affirming Community
The midwives’ model of care is well-suited to meet the needs of people with diverse gender and sexual identities. In this webinar, Equity in Midwifery Education covers why inclusion and integration are relevant, discusses the history of how we have understood and defined sex and gender, and reviews key concepts including gender identity, biological sex, and gender expression. They examine best practices in midwifery and the ways in which the interests of midwives and women are aligned with those of transgender folks. Finally, they consider particular challenges for educators in creating inclusive learning environments and responding to student needs and perspectives.
