Table 4 Questions for providers

From: From erasure to opportunity: a qualitative study of the experiences of transgender men around pregnancy and recommendations for providers

- What resources do you have available to help potential parents through all aspects of pre-conception counseling, pregnancy, birth, lactation and early child-rearing for children growing up with transgender parents?
- What services are available to support assisted reproduction for transgender individuals in your area?
- What are the best options in your area for patients to find a good environment for labor and delivery? Which hospitals, birth centers, and midwifery practices are most likely to provide appropriate care? How can you help link your patient with these resources, and how can you serve as an ally to help these birth sites best serve your patient?
- What is the process for obtaining a birth certificate in your jurisdiction? How can you help patients to navigate this process in a way that affirms their identity?
