Transmasculine people seeking pregnancy care face: poor healthcare provider knowledge and guidance around their specific needs; feelings of loneliness, exclusion and isolation related to navigating the external world, internal identity and gender dysphoria while pregnant; and inadequate access to culturally competent services. Considering short-and long-term clinical, research and policy perspectives in the UK, there is a need for: quantitative and qualitative research into the outcomes and experiences of pregnancy; clear guidance from midwifery and obstetric bodies; trans-inclusive standardised curricula; development of community-led peer support; and consideration of specialist training materials and roles.
