Do we need to use more inclusive terms in pregnancy and birth?

How do you feel about terms like "body with a vagina" instead of using the word "woman"? Or "chest feeding" instead of "breast feeding"? The medical world is grappling with these terms as they seek to become more inclusive of transgender and non-binary people. However a new paper compiled by experts in the field of pregnancy and birth say that changing the language for everyone may end up doing more harm than good. Dr Karleen Gribble is an Adjunct Associate Professor in Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Western Sydney. She contributed to the article and explains how taking sexed language out of pregnancy and birth would be bad for both women and the transgender community.
