About this course:
What makes us unique?
In this interactive session, we will be examining the full spectrum of trans fertility, including how to support trans people who haven’t medically transitioned, what the effects are of medical transition on fertility and nursing, postpartum considerations for trans gestational parents... and more. Trystan will be bringing diverse voices to the conversation as you learn how to understand, welcome, and support trans and gender non-conforming pregnant people in your practice.
