If you’re interested in becoming a midwife, The Practising Midwife magazine’s got you covered.

And if you’re interested in giving transgender birth, the same applies.

The British midwifery periodical released a special edition for its 24th volume in May, praising childbirth’s “amazing” evolution.

Whoever was put in charge of the cover, few would deny they went bold.

Dr. Daniel Growcott — identified on Twitter as a “reformed militant moet medic” with “he/him/hands/face/space” pronouns — served up the shot:

I haven’t knowingly looked after any transgender people on labour ward but I hope when I do it is as positive an experience! Good on Practising Midwife for trans inclusivity 🏳️‍🌈 https://t.co/bw9azQUCIn

“So good!”

“This is absolutely beautiful.”

“Why can’t I love this more than once? Birthing people come in all shapes, sizes and genders.”

“This is empowering [as heck].”

“Let’s f—-n’ go, this s— owns.”

“This is so awesome. Trans dudes rock.”

“This is so beautiful and wholesome!”

Pink News described the installment as follows:

The Practising Midwife emphatically said that trans men who give birth are “amazing.”

Part of the magazine’s Normal Birth series, the cover features a trans Black man after giving birth to a baby as his partner looks on in pride. His fist raised in the air, showing a rainbow tattoo with the words “right on” underneath.

PN went on to lament some “transphobic Twitter trolls and anti-trans pressure groups” who targeted the ‘zine — “because their hobby is hate.”

The Practising Midwife is certainly in line with healthcare’s current goings-on .

As I covered in February, two hospitals in the UK nixed the terms “breastfeeding” and “father.”

Better: “Chestfeeding and
