Margrit & Eileen welcome Lee Czechowski to the podcast! Lee (they/them) is a queer mixed Anishnaabe/Settler midwifery student at Laurentian University. They love singing, puns, puzzles, coffee, and their three cats. When they used to have spare time, they spent it hiking, driving across the country, and building the best little queer haven in Northern Ontario.
We talk about working in a hospital during a pandemic, the gender-stereotypes in midwifery, being an advocate for queer and trans parents, and finding joy during difficult times.
