• Healthcare traumatization


    I don’t know who needs to hear this right now, but feeling traumatized by a medical provider/clinic/procedure is valid.

    The medical field is just as shaped and filled with biases, prejudice, misinformation and ignorance as any other field.

    And the more minoritized identities you hold, the more likely you are to experience poor care or trauma within the medical field.

    We know from lived experience and research that women, BIPOC, queer, non-cis, and low-income folks are more likely to not be listened to or get adequate care.

    You deserve to have providers who listen, who meet you where you are at, believe and do not cause further harm.
