Description: We know that respectful and anti-racist maternal care should be the standard for providers, but what does it look like in practice? In this session, we will explore how to deliver respectful and anti-racist maternal care through the following perspectives: obstetrics, midwifery, health equity research, patient safety, and community. Panelists will discuss experiences with respectful/disrespectful and racist/anti-racist maternal care, why change is important, and how we achieve the respectful and anti-racist maternal care for all.
