Safe Space: All Are Welcome at KCM
Both as Ontario Midwives and as individuals, we are passionately devoted to nurturing and guarding an environment of safety and inclusivity for all of our clients. We continue to learn and grow in our commitment to serve all people who come to us for care in a spirit of kinship and kindness, acknowledging the impacts that colonialism, racism, misogyny, patriarchy, and other complex forms of oppression have on people of various backgrounds and lived experiences.
We want to be clear that this means that all people are welcome at our clinic and have the right to excellent care, regardless of their identities (religious, ethnic, racial, gender, sexual), physical appearance or ability.
We also want to be clear that an environment of mutual respect and consideration is non-negotiable in our clinic space and includes midwives, clinic staff, and clients.
