[Trigger warning: miscarriage] #NotNeurotic: Misogynoir, Misdiagnosis and Miscarriage⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👩‍💻 Looking forward to joining the Women’s Network at St Mary’s (via Zoom) on Monday for their #IWD2021 event Our Bodies, Ourselves.
👩‍⚕️New on #HystericalWomen, as part of #NotNeurotic, @nicola_chegwin writes about her encounter with The Keeper of the Caesareans.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
😬 The struggle is real 🙄
[Trigger warning: bereavement, baby loss]⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤰🏾Today I'm launching #NotNeurotic, #HystericalWomen's series exploring how mothers, trans and non-binary parents are treated in healthcare. This has been made possible by @BetterYou_Ltd's generous sponsorship of five paid guest posts, by mothers and parents from under-represented backgrounds.
March is always quite a gynae-heavy month in my calendar, with Endometriosis Awareness Month, Ovarian Cancer Month, and of course International Women’s Day. This year there’s also the added fun of the anniversary of lockdown in the UK. 12 months of Covid, and all the implications that brings for women’s health, chronic illness and disability. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤬Just some of the #ShitMyDoctorSays to LBT women and non-binary folk when they’re seeking healthcare. Really quite disturbing how many of these comments were made by mental health professionals😩
Thank you so much to everyone who’s been in touch this week. Between all the horrifying stories I’ve been sent and all the threads I’ve been tagged in, my rage levels have been pretty high for the last few days!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
