A Transgender Couple’s Journey to Parenthood

A heartwarming story of love, resilience, and becoming parents

Tori and Syven, a couple who are both transgender, have captivated the online community with their unique pregnancy journey. In a touching YouTube video titled “My husband gave birth to our children,” Tori shares their story of how Syven, her husband, gave birth to their one-year-old son, Prophet, and one-month-old daughter, Wynter.

Tori initially believed that conceiving naturally was impossible for them, but they were pleasantly surprised. Syven, who had been taking testosterone for a long time as part of his transition, also never thought he would have the opportunity to experience pregnancy. Despite the challenges they faced, both Tori and Syven consider their pregnancies to be perfect.

However, their journey was not without its difficulties. The couple faced judgment and scrutiny from others, which took a toll on them emotionally. Syven expressed his discomfort while surrounded by pregnant women at the obstetrician-gynecologist office, where people struggled to comprehend how a man could get pregnant. Tori recalled the stares, smirks, and giggles they often encountered in public.

But amidst the negativity, Tori and Syven remained focused on creating a nurturing environment for their children. They firmly believe that raising their kids to be successful and happy is their top priority. And while they have faced adversity, they hope for greater understanding and support for pregnant transgender individuals and their families. This includes using the correct pronouns and promoting a more open-minded approach in hospitals and society as a whole.
