Abstract:

There is an urgent need for all health care providers to be well versed in cultural humility and cultural safety during pregnancy and birth. This presentation will explore these concepts in the context of providing labour support, and provide a detailed look at what cultural humility is, why we should practice it and the consequences when we don’t, along with practical information about how to practice cultural humility and the beautiful changes that happen when we approach labour support with an open mind and heart and the intention to be aware of our own biases in order to provide culturally safe care.
