On May 1, 2017, HIVE welcomed two brilliant, radical and caring souls to San Francisco: Registered Midwife Jay MacGillivray and Dr. Mark Yudin (ObGyn) of Toronto’s Positive Pregnancy Program (P3).

In 2006, Jay and Mark co-founded and now co-direct the Positive Pregnancy Programme (P3) at St Michael’s Hospital, Toronto. Their interdisciplinary program works with parents and communities to provide evolving, trauma-aware and culturally-informed sexual and reproductive care for people already living with HIV and for those at systemic risk.

Their talk, “Trauma-Aware Reproductive Care for Women Living with HIV & Those at Risk” explored how prenatal care is impacted by trauma; including insecure or unsafe housing, immigration status, gender-based violence, problematic substance use, severe mental illness and exploited sex work.

We hope you learn as much as we did from their presentation. Slides and video recordings below.
