Not all families look the same.
Not every birthing person identifies as a woman.
Not every parent refers to themself as mom or dad.
We recognize that society associates parenting with exclusively cis-gendered heterosexual realtionships and women. While birthing women (and those who self identify as women) are deeply affected by the patriarchal system in which we birth and learn about our bodies, we are COMMITTED to including our LGBTQIAP+ friends because this exclusive hetero-normative language is harmful. This community is deeply marginalized in reproductive health and wellness. Our role in revolutionizing the childbearing year includes recognizing the oppression that this community has felt in their pursuit of happiness. This pursuit, for many people, regardless of their identification, birthing a baby and having a family is part of that.
We are here to create community and in order to do so we need to be held accountable.
Please keep us accountable and let us know how we can continue to be better and do better by you.
