Teaching transgender topics
I had the good fortune to spend 2 days last week in an excellent training on teaching transgender & gender non-binary topics with trainers from The Teaching Transgender Toolkit.
Full-Spectrum Doula Circle courses have always been explicitly trans-welcoming & I provide some resources to help doulas prepare to support trans clients. After taking this training, I'm updating best practices & making some small but important changes to my existing offerings. I'm also developing a new workshop focused specifically on providing support for trans & non-binary clients. More info about this as it emerges.
Trans & non-binary folks often avoid or delay accessing healthcare because of misgendering, microaggressions, and outright hostility. I think we have an obligation as doulas to develop skills & knowledge to be able to support trans & non-binary clients with kindness & sensitivity.
