A Berlin man has become the first man in Germany to give birth to a baby.

 

He is only identified as male, but has a female reproductive system.

 

The baby boy was born successfully on Monday.

The baby was delivered with the help of a Medical Doctor and midwives in the Neukolln area of Berlin.

On government records, the new father, who is a transgender, is registered as a man. This makes him the first male Germany to give birth.

The man reportedly became pregnant through a sperm donation. Officially, the child does not have a mother, only a father. The case is reminiscent of transgender Thomas Beatie who has given birth to three children in the USA.

Transgender people are able to give birth to children because even when a woman undergoes hormone therapy to become more physically masculine, they can retain female organs.
