Finding Your Compass – A Midwife’s Crash Course in Social Justice*

Midwifery as a profession is coming to a crossroads, being forced to make decisions about its role as a social advocacy force in our communities, our country and our world at large. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the conversations about birth justice and the ability of midwives to sustain social justice advocacy in addition to providing quality client care. This presentation provides a crash-course in social justice work with a back-to-basics approach, stripping it down to the collective values of the profession, and offering an easy-to-follow framework to consciously engage in sustainable birth justice work for the collective good of the diverse range of families we serve.
