This Dignity in Pregnancy and Childbirth: Indigenous Women and Birthing People course is designed to provide Minnesota healthcare professionals and individuals involved in perinatal care with a comprehensive understanding of the challenges faced by Indigenous women and birthing people.

Through video learning and case studies this course aims to deepen participants' understanding of the barriers faced by Indigenous women and birthing people in accessing high-quality care. Participants will examine how biases and stereotypes can undermine the quality of care, even when well-intentioned, and explore strategies to prevent these biases from affecting their care practices.

The course will delve into the historical, intergenerational, and current-day trauma experienced by Indigenous communities and its specific impact on pregnancy and childbirth. Participants will gain insights into the unique challenges faced by Indigenous women and birthing people and their families, fostering empathy and cultural awareness.

Furthermore, the course will focus on developing culturally sensitive, culturally safe, and trauma-informed perinatal care approaches. Participants will explore key components of providing care that respects and honors Indigenous communities' cultural traditions, values, and beliefs. By enhancing their knowledge and skills in this area, participants will be better equipped to deliver dignified and respectful care to Indigenous women and birthing people, promoting positive health outcomes and nurturing stronger relationships.
