In a Twitter post, Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust said they wanted to hear from “birth people” who have used their perinatal services.

But social media users have blasted the term “exclusive.”

One, author Polly James, said: “How do you think women treated by you for PTSD caused by birth trauma feel when you dehumanize them and erase the word ‘mother’? It destroys the hard-won trust your therapists have for women like us.”

Another, Shabda Cloud, said: “Human birth? How many have you excluded in the name of inclusion? When was the last time you heard someone call themselves that?

“How many times have you heard people say, ‘I’m going to visit my birth person and my father’? This is dangerous nonsense.”

Heather Welford said: “Birth people are all women – every one, no matter how they identify.

“Let’s hope women who volunteer for this group explain how exclusionary your terminology is.”

The Trust has been asked for comment. A third of NHS organizations are now using bright expressions like ‘pregnant people’ and ‘service users’ to describe maternity patients. Awakened NHS trust sparks anger at saying ‘birth people’ instead of ‘mothers’
