LGBTQ Parenting Network Workshop - London





    •  


















  • What does it mean to be a queer positive professional?

    Come join us for a full day workshop facilitated by Rachel Epstein, Coordinator of the LGBTQ Parenting Network in Toronto.

    We will be touching upon the history and social context of LGBTQ families, inclusive language, personal biases and the process of unlearning, common misconceptions of LGBTQ parents, personal narratives, followed by a question and answer period. 

    We encourage everyone to come participate! This workshop would be especially helpful for midwives, doulas, lactation consultants, childbirth educators, counsellors, and other health and wellness-related professionals and students.

    To register there is a $40 investment to contribute back into The LGBTQ Parenting Network’s community programming, to cover Rachel Epstein’s costs, and for the catering provided by The Root Cellar. This is a sliding scale event so please contact me if you'd like to come but can't invest the entire $40!

    This workshop has limited space!
