INTRODUCTION Individuals who are transgender often want a family and want to bevalidated as fathers, but may lack support in the reproductive health field. The aim ofthis qualitative study was to explore midwives’ perceptions regarding caring for transmenduring labour and birth.

METHODS Five midwives were recruited from Stockholm-area hospitals, with interviewslasting 17 minutes on average. Qualitative content analysis using an inductive approachwas used.

RESULTS Our findings describe the challenges midwives face when caring for transmen inchildbirth, including a lack of knowledge, confusion on working with transgender, how toprovide individualized support, and the complexity of childbirth.

CONCLUSIONS The midwives faced challenges when caring for transmen in childbirth.Since midwives lacked knowledge regarding best practices to support transmen, theywanted to receive more education on how to care for transmen during birth.
