Trans* birthing experiences: Making meaning of gender and gendered experiences

Study Description

I am seeking to understand how non-female gestational parents make meaning of their gender and gendered experiences during the childbearing year.

This is qualitative study using a psychoanalytic case study methodology. This study seeks to deepen and expand our understanding of how a person negotiates the intersection of body, gender, and culture when the person’s embodied activity is assigned gendered meanings that are inconsistent with their gender identity. Additionally, I want to understand how individuals themselves construct their gender identities and gendered experiences.
