With a professional facilitation background and a wealth of knowledge about LGBTQ+ health, fertility, and family-building, Trystan works to provide meaningful educational opportunities for birthing professionals and fertility providers. He offers two types of online trainings, listed below, and is available for in-person training as well. Submit a contact request if you would like to chat about developing a unique training for your community or organization.
Every quarter, Trystan partners with Cornerstone Doula Trainings to offer a three-hour intensive on transgender fertility, pregnancy, and childbirth. This interactive, multimedia workshop is for doulas, birth keepers, midwives, and other birthworkers. Trystan will provide evidence-based information on the full spectrum of trans fertility, including how to support trans people who haven’t medically transitioned, what the effects are of medical transition on fertility and nursing, postpartum considerations for trans gestational parents... and more. Trystan will also be bringing his personal experience as a trans gestational parent to the conversation, and includes diverse voices so you can learn how to understand, welcome, and support trans and gender non-conforming pregnant people in your practice.
Here’s what past attendees had to say about this session:
“All of the laughter. What a great speaker! I loved that Trystan was so approachable, humble, honest, and inclusive. He did a great job of being non judgmental. I was truly impressed with his vulnerability and kindness, paired with his expansive knowledge.”
