Abstract
Reproductive technology has made it possible for those born biologically female and who have partially transitioned to the male gender via hormones to become pregnant and give birth. This article explores the role of the perinatal nurse in providing care during the obstetric experience for a transgender male and his significant other. A carefully executed plan of care can assist the nurse in providing nonjudgmental, nondiscriminatory physical and emotional nursing care, and ensure that the family’s healthcare needs are met and that their transition into parenthood is effective.
