SARAH: We had the most incredible midwife for the birth.
When we first met her, we explained our situation, and she used the term "non-gestational mom," which I’d never heard before.
There was a section that said "reproductive endocrinologist," which sounded just right.
I called a couple of different offices until I got someone to call me back. I know that this doctor doesn't have any experience with this, because NO ONE has any experience with it.
I loved that when confronted with a situation that had been confusing for so many doctors and nurses, she had a perfect, descriptive word for my relationship to my baby, right on the tip of her tongue and didn’t stumble over whether to use ‘non-biological’ or ‘donor’ or something else inappropriate.
I'm one of the two genetic moms of my baby, but I'm the non-gestational mom. I looked through my health insurance booklet for an endocrinologist.
Despite having taken hormone replacement therapy and antiandrogens for 5 years, Sarah was still able to produce what she calls ‘baby-making ingredients’ following a six-month cessation of her medication.
Over the last few weeks, I spoke a couple of times with a trans woman and mother, who we'll call Sarah, to better understand how she became a parent and successfully induced lactation.So far, this blog has exclusively addressed issues faced by transmasculine folks.I started writing it from my personal experience, and I am transmasculine.Sarah banked her gametes, a choice she believes all trans women should be offered.
Another five years later, when she and her wife decided to conceive, Sarah went off her hormones once again to obtain a fresh DNA contribution if possible.In addition, this genetic material is very sensitive to heat and needs to develop away from the body, below core body temperature.A trans woman who usually ‘tucks’ will need to change how she dresses for a while to regain her fertility.We’re flesh and blood, we have real live bodies that are ours, and that hold and love our children. But reading the book was really worthwhile, and one of the things that struck me was the difference in a mom's experience when she had not had a breastfeeding relationship with her baby.
