Beyond the Rainbow: How to Support LGBTQIA+ Clients & Create an Inclusive Practice for All Families

  • Registration Closed

As a doula, how are you welcoming and supporting LGBTQIA+ clients in your practice? Are you sometimes confused by the acronyms and new terms you see? This session will give you a foundational understanding of what all the letters mean (and why is that "plus sign" there?). We will discuss how to create a safe space from the initial contact to the birth and beyond. You will leave with a better understanding of how inclusive your practice currently is, along with tips you can implement immediately to let clients know that you are truly ready to serve all families.
