Jade was delighted to give some training to infertility counsellors with the British Infertility Counselling Association last week about the law on parenthood and fertility for transgender patients. Invited by BICA to address their regular training seminar, Jade was delighted to support counsellors who so clearly want to give quality support to the growing numbers of trans men and women seeking fertility treatment to preserve their fertility or conceive children. Jade spoke about the law, as well as good professional practice when working with modern families, including terminology, key issues to consider and good client care.
At NGA Law, we work with many trans clients and are prominent supporters of Gender Recognition Act reform, given the clear need for a more modern process of self-determination for changing birth certificates, and updated law on parental titles for trans parent who conceive children after transitioning. We also work closely with the charity Mermaids to give legal support to UK trans and gender diverse young people and their families.
