The Pregnant Man

The Pregnant Man

Available on BBC Select, Prime Video
Thomas Beatie and his wife Nancy want what many couples want - to start a family. But it’s Thomas, not Nancy, who’s pregnant. He’s a trans man and it’s been a difficult pregnancy, but not for the usual reasons. Turned away by doctors, trailed by press, there’s no legal precedent for this situation. By giving birth, will Thomas become the legal mother AND father? Just mother? Or just father?
