LGBTQI+ INCLUSIVITY CONSULTING
we are for hire to help other birthworkers & healthcare providers create inclusive practices
Midwife Michele is available for hire to other birthworkers and healthcare providers who want to create more inclusive practices for queer, transgender, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and intersex clients, patients, and customers.
After getting some cultural competency training, one of the first things many providers realise they need to do is to make sure their existing paperwork, print materials, and website are inclusive. Usually after some training it is easier for providers to see where their materials might be problematic, but they might not have the time or feel confident enough to go through and edit everything. This is where Midwife Michele can help out. They can go over your website, printed education and advertisement materials, and your paperwork in an effort to point out places where improvement towards inclusion can be made. Michele is also available to help create new materials, help troubleshoot general practice issues and structures concerning inclusivity, and present on inclusivity issues to other members in a group practice. Because Michele is queer and trans nonbinary, they have the ability to critique a provider's practice through a first-hand experience lense.
