Hayden Cross paused his hormone replacement treatment to get pregnant.
In a case of bringing this right to reality, a man, initially born as a female in the UK underwent artificial insemination and gave birth to a baby girl. Hayden Cross, 21, initially called Paige is the proud parent of Trinity-Leigh, the baby girl who was conceived by Hayden through a cesarean on June 16, 2017.
Hayden had initially applied to the NHS and requested that he freeze his eggs so he could have a baby sometime in the future. But his request was denied as the medical chiefs refused to authorize the procedure. While this procedure would cost him around 3 lakh rupees, the private costs were too high for his to bear. "I faced the prospect of not becoming the man I'm supposed to be, physically, or a dad. So I didn't feel like I had any choice but to have a baby now then get back to transitioning," he says.
Hayden, legally a man for 3 years now, paused the hormone replacement treatment to get pregnant. He browsed through the internet and found a sperm donor on Facebook, and then injected the sperms in himself with a syringe. After the baby matures, Hayden plans to resume treatment and get his breast and ovaries removed.
While Hayden is named as the mother on the baby's birth certificate, there isn't a mention of the father.
