Can a man become a woman and give birth?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 03/07/2018

Yes, this is the case of transgender men (commonly referred to as FTM, an acronym for female to male). As long as they have decided to retain their ovarian function and a uterus, they can become pregnant and give birth. It is the case of Matt Rice and Thomas Beatie, two transgender men who have borne children successfully.
