Midwives in Australia are fighting back against pregnant women being called pregnant persons. Good on those midwives!"Professor Alison Kitson, vice president and executive dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Flinders University, agreed.“Retaining the ‘woman-centred’ term is important to remind us all that our care is focused on the women and the significant life-changing experience they are about to have,” she said."I am enjoying seeing more and more of a fight back. Especially from professional bodies.http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/lifestyle/parenting/midwives-rail-against-proposal-to-call-women-persons-in-new-code-of-conduct/news-story/0c3b37b55934effcfc48498b64a1256f
For some reason MN is really not coping well with links in OPwww.adelaidenow.com.au/lifestyle/parenting/midwives-rail-against-proposal-to-call-women-persons-in-new-code-of-conduct/news-story/0c3b37b55934effcfc48498b64a1256f
Good for them! Hope this gets lots of publiclity.
Then comments below the article back them too. I hope we really are seeing people realising what's going on and fighting back.
Well done those women!Good news.
Good on them. Women are pushing back. Peak transing at last. Midwifery is women centred care and long may it remain.
Quite right too! Midwife means "with woman".
Midwives are the vanguard. I find this so cheering.
Go Australia! That may be because the trans craziness isn't very prominent here yet: everything takes a while to get to Australia including social trends. I'm bracing myself for it unleashing here too soon.
