    Inside Pregnancy: Girl or Boy? | BabyCenter

    – [Narrator] Your baby’s sex is set at conception. At around seven weeks your baby’s internal sex organs such as ovaries and testes begin to form in the abdomen.

In girls a tiny bud emerges between the tissue of the legs. This bud will become the clitoris. The membrane that forms a groove below the bud separates to become the labia minora and the vaginal opening. By 22 weeks the ovaries are completely formed and move from the abdomen…

    “If all men got pregnant, it’d be taken more seriously” – behind the scenes of Seahorse

    This is a film about me having a baby. But what I feel like I’m going through isn’t me having a baby or pregnancy, it’s like a much more fundamental, total loss of myself. So I’m Freddy McConnell and Seahorse is a film about how I became a dad and how as a trans man I chose pregnancy and birth in order to do that. Male seahorses give birth and carry their babies. Trans dads who give birth call themselves seahorse dads. It’s a word that we use for ourselves so it felt like a sort of continuation of the idea that this film was told with my consent and…

    The lies we tell pregnant women | Sofia Jawed-Wessel

    Translator: Joseph Geni Reviewer: Joanna Pietrulewicz We’re going to share a lot of secrets today, you and I, and in doing so, I hope that we can lift some of the shame many of us feel about sex. How many here have ever been catcalled by a stranger? Lots of women. For me, the time I remember best is when that stranger was a student of mine. He came up to me after class that night and his words confirmed what I already knew: “I am so sorry, professor. If I had known it was you, I would never have said those things.” (Laughter) I wasn’t a person to him…

    Trans and pregnant: The dad who gave birth – BBC Stories

    I’ve always wanted to have kids one day. Not only women feel broody. I’m going to have my own baby because it’s the pragmatic thing to do. It’s the simplest option. This is a physical process and I will be… the dad. I worry that people are going to judge me… because I don’t fit the stereotypical… thing, story, whatever it is that, people expect to hear… from trans guys who are like… “Oh yeah, I just – you know – I identified as a lesbian…” “And then, I realised I was a guy, and I’m a straight guy”.
