Inclusive Practice Policy

Birthwise is a welcoming and safe place for people of all races, ethnicities, national origins, skin pigmentations, religions, body compositions, physical abilities, neurodiversities, gender identities and expression, sexual orientation and families of all make ups.

I am sorry if you are a person who has ever felt rejected or discriminated against. Please be reassured you won’t get that from anyone working for Birthwise.

Language is important. I may need some help to know the right words to use or if there is a specific way you would like to be addressed. Or, if there are any cultural considerations, accessibility needs or anything else I can do for you to feel comfortable and respected as we work together during this exciting time in your life please reach out to me and let me know what I can do. I am learning too and I want to get this right for you.
