Trystan's training on transgender & gender-expansive fertility was very comprehensive and evidence-based, while also utilizing community experiences to enrich healthcare workers' understanding of the variety of TGE pregnancy and birth. Highly recommended! All healthcare workers who see pregnant people should go through Trystan's training.

This course is everything I wanted and needed it to be. All the information was very accessible and I hope everyone supporting the birthing queer community will take this module! It's opened my eyes to the first hand experiences that transgender people have had during their fertility and birth journey. I really appreciated the emotional and personal take on education, but also how you intertwined facts and science that we have (yay!) and what's very lacking in terms of understanding the prenatal, birth and postpartum period for transgender folks. Thank you to Trystan, Kori, Marnie, Bran and Jay for your strength, willingness to share and vulnerability that you all shared. I am very grateful and appreciate you all so much!
