How do you feel about the student midwives being taught how to catheterise a penis at Napier university?
Are there any midwives who are resisting the nonsense new paradigm that men can give birth and so we must now be birthing bodies and not mothers?
Because I can't be very confident in a healthcare professional who thinks that men can give birth. That'll disturb my oxytocin whatnots.

I'm pregnant through IVF and after miscarriages. It's been a very anxious time but I'm nearly in the 3rd trimester. I found in the early stages midwives did not know what was and was not appropriate to say in these circumstances. Is this something that comes up in training / CPD?
I had to raise the issue and I now have an amazing community midwife and I'm under Consultant care, but I worry a lot about having the same issue with midwives on delivery suite / post natal ward.
