The midwives’ model of care is well-suited to meet the needs of people with diverse gender and sexual identities. In this webinar, we will cover why inclusion and integration are relevant, discuss the history of how we have understood and defined sex and gender, and review key concepts including gender identity, biological sex, and gender expression. We will examine best practices in midwifery and the ways in which the interests of midwives and women are aligned with those of transgender folks. Finally, we will consider particular challenges for educators in creating inclusive learning environments and responding to student needs and perspectives.
