Pregnant men: an international exploration of trans male experiences and practices of reproduction

Many male transgender people (hereafter “trans men”) transition without undergoing surgery to remove their reproductive organs or reconstruct their genitals; thus they may retain the ability and, importantly, the desire to reproduce. This project aims to explore the practices, experiences and healthcare needs of the growing number of men who may seek to, or become, pregnant and give birth after gender transition. The research team will use qualitative methods (including interviews, focus groups, virtual analysis and visual methods) and will focus on a range of countries (the UK, the US, Australia, Poland and Italy) to gain a broad perspective. The study will focus on the experiences of trans people who become parents after transition. In considering the relationship between gender identity, the gendered body, and masculinity and femininity at subjective levels, the project seeks to examine how trans male narratives of pregnancy and birth bring new understandings to the embodied and gendered processes of parenting.
