In an effort to shine a light on the outdated terminology that women experience throughout fertility and motherhood, we started a viral campaign called the #RenamingRevolution.
Thousands of you came forward to share the hurtful terms you’ve experienced first-hand, like incompetent cervix, geriatric pregnancy, and spontaneous abortion (yes, these words were still being used in 2021!).
It was clear to us that something needed to change. So today, we’re announcing the launch of the #RenamingRevolution Glossary. With help from linguists and medical professionals, this glossary aims to redefine the negatively-charged terms that are too often used during the most sensitive and vulnerable times in women’s lives
The #RenamingRevolution Motherhood & Fertility Glossary
We hope our glossary will serve as an important resource for anyone who speaks to women about their maternal experiences moving forward, and be a part of creating a stigma-free future.
We’re also sending out printed copies to clinics, classes, and more - if you’d like to request one, click here.
Thank you for being a part of the #RenamingRevolution.
