Britain Will Ban the Use of the Word "Mother" in Midwifery
"Mother", "maternal" and other similar words will be replaced with gender-neutral expressions such as "parent". Changes will also affect conversations about breastfeeding: "breastmilk" is proposed to be denoted by the neologism "chestmilk" - this neologism does not contain a word for a woman's breast.
This prohibition on the use of the word "mother" is intended to protect transgender people and other non-binary people from additional terminological pressures that can negatively affect their psychological and emotional well-being.
The new rules will affect not only direct communication with patients, but also publications of a medical organization on social networks and on official websites.
