We are a team of LGBTQ and ally researchers who want to share some of our findings with our communities. This website is for families, service providers, and researchers who care for LGBTQ people and who want to support them. We made this website because we wanted to share useful information with you!

There's just so many different ways to raise a baby. [...] That sounds just so corny, but I think it's true. There's no one right way.

Most of our findings are coming from a 2-year study called Postpartum Wellbeing Study (Funded through The National Institute of Health), a research study where we looked at the mental health and wellbeing of women of various sexual identities in the Toronto and Boston areas as they transitioned into parenthood. These were some of our questions:

  • How do the mental health experiences of parents differ depending on their identities and relationships?
  • How do reproductive and pregnancy experiences differ depending on sexual identity?
  • How do sexual minority parents assume or express gender of their children?
  • What are the LGBTQ community connections?

Check out more information of our partnerships and take a peak at our findings for Families, Service Providers or Researchers. If you have any questions or concerns contact us.
