A 30-year-old transgender woman has been able to breastfeed her baby in the first recorded case of its kind. The case was published in Transgender Health. The woman, who had been on hormone replacement therapy for six years, but had not had gender reassignment surgery, went to see doctors while her partner was pregnant. She told them that her partner wouldn’t want to breastfeed the baby and that she was willing to do it herself. The doctors put her on a three-and-a-half-month course of treatment, and she was able to breastfeed for 6 weeks after birth. The baby grew and developed healthily during this time. motherhood maternité / transgender transgenre, transsexuel / to be able to être en mesure de, pouvoir / to breastfeed, breastfed, breastfed nourrir au sein, allaiter / recorded ici, connu / kind genre / health santé / hormone replacement therapy traitement hormonal de substitution / gender reassignment surgery chirurgie de réattribution sexuelle / pregnant enceinte / to be willing to être prêt à / course of treatment traitement.
