EVENT SUMMARY

In this webinar practitioners will develop the tools necessary to deliver culturally competent health care. Participants will learn to assess the interplay of specific social dynamics that shape our client's births by hearing directly from families who will share their own experiences of treatment they received and how it impacted their decisions. We will examine the meaning of intersectionality; identify the role of race, sex and gender in birth; and break down the ways that these identities are systematically processed through the institutions of birth work. The goal of this session is to create a safe space where participants can share their own multidimensional and multicultural experiences as individuals. This session provides doulas with the resources to become stronger, more conscious providers by fostering a deeper appreciation of the different realities our clients bring with them to the postpartum period.
