“The emotional trauma of giving birth in the wrong gender”

Revealed! Not a man.

The UK’s first pregnant man has revealed that carrying a child for nine months as a transgender man was ‘a big battle’ and he wouldn’t advise anyone to go through it.

Hayden Cross, 21, from Gloucester, stopped transitioning to start a family of his own in 2016 and gave birth to a daughter Trinity-Leigh, one, in June 2017.

Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine this morning, Cross, who was born Paige, opened up about the realities of being pregnant as a transgender man, saying giving birth brought up ‘a lot of emotions and a lot of feelings’ and he didn’t feel well supported.
