Welcome to The Reproductive Justice Story Project
By offering a platform for sharing stories, we hope to raise awareness of mistreatment & abuse at the hands of healthcare professionals during pregnancy, childbirth & postpartum, and while accessing other reproductive healthcare in Ontario.
We’re welcoming your stories of birth trauma, obstetric or gynaecological violence, pregnancy & infant loss, abortion, permanent contraception, fertility care, postpartum complications and more, with the end goal of influencing change across the province.
If you have a personal story to share about disrespectful, disempowering, frustrating, unprofessional or negligent care you've experienced in recent years, consider sharing it for the Community Story Blog.
Our next planned initiative, an Ontario-wide birth trauma survey, is currently in the works. The results of our independent St. Joe's Toronto Family Birthing Centre patient feedback survey are coming very soon. Stay tuned for updates!
