Students in midwifery at the top Scottish university learned that trans and biological men can get pregnant.

MailOnline can reveal the £9,000-a-year undergraduate course at Edinburgh Napier University included a woke module Concerning ‘Birthing People’   

The coursebook was revised and trainee midwives received detailed instruction on how to care for a transgender person during childbirth.

The current technologies and medicine make it impossible for a man who is born as a woman to become pregnant. 

In the introduction to the book, it stated that you may be taking care of a woman who is pregnant or giving birth and they may have male external genitalia.

The second section included photos showing how to place a catheter on a pregnant woman who has a penis, scrotum and penis. 

The book also included special instructions for people with prostate glands — which are exclusive to biological men — who may feel particular ‘discomfort’.

Many experts criticized the university. They described the material in the woke courses as being’remarkably ignorant’ about anatomy, biology and sex. 

Following the chaos, university bosses changed their wording to read “people who are transitioning from male to female” rather than “male to female”.

Students in midwifery at a top Scottish university were told that biological males could become pregnant through their penises. Students were informed in a revised coursebook, that they could be responsible for the care of a woman who is pregnant or giving birth and might still have male genitalia.

A section on fitting catheters during labour repeats the line and goes on to give special instructions for people with penises

The section about fitting catheters in labor continues the same line, and it goes on with special instructions for penises patients.

One instruction says: 'Wrap a sterile swab around the penis and, with the same non-touch technique, retract the foreskin if present.' 'Place sterile towel across the person's thighs, ensuring the scrotal area is covered,' adds another

Another instruction states that you should wrap a non-touch sterile towel around your penis. One more instructs: ‘Load sterile towels across person’s thighs to cover the scrotal.

But all references to handling a penis, prostate gland and other male genitalia remain, according to Reduxx, which first broke the story.

More confusion is created by the fact that it states midwives may expect to use penises on biological females because of how it was edited.

Reduxx did not name the university, but MailOnline understands it is Edinburgh Napier — just one of four in Scotland that offers an undergraduate, accredited midwifery course. 

MailOnline has repeatedly reached out to Napier for comments.

Leila Hana, a private physician and obstetrician said midwives should be taught in universities ‘what is actually feasible’.

MailOnline spoke to her: “Many things must be done in order to reach the technology that allows for biological men to give birth. 

‘We would have to be able to give men wombs and then put eggs and sperm in there — I’ve not seen any publications to say we’ve arrived at that technology yet.

“Let us focus on what can be done, and how it can be improved, but we must not dream of what might happen in the future.

Only women born as females are able to make eggs. It is therefore impossible for male-to-female transgender women to become pregnant naturally.

After the outcry, Edinburgh Napier University bosses (pictured) changed the intro to transition from “female” to “male”.

WHY BIOLOGICAL MATURES CAN’T GIVE BOTH CHILDREN… But it is possible to have a biological man give birth.

Only women born as females are able to make eggs. It is therefore impossible for male-to-female transgender women to become pregnant naturally.

Scientists think it theoretically is possible to immunize a transwoman using IVF. This happens when eggs are fertilised outside and then inserted. 

However, it will require a healthy baby for them to thrive. Transplant operations can take years or even decades. 

One case was ever documented of a transgender woman being born with her womb.— but she died from complications just months later.

It is possible to still have a baby if you are a female-to male transgender person.

Only if the women haven’t had a hysterectomy or taken any hormone-blocking medications that prevent them from making eggs.

The number of transgender women who have given birth in Britain or the world is unknown.

In 2020, Australia was the country that had the highest number of male births. Seventy-five men identified themselves as being male.

It would take a healthy foetus for it to be possible, which is why transplants are often years away.

People who are female-to-male transgender can still have children provided that they haven’t had a hysterectomy, or taken any hormone-blocking medication to stop their eggs from being produced.

Napier students claimed that they received a “Skills Workbook” in the module on caring for babies who gave birth last month.

They were told on separate occasions that the “birthing person” could be biologically male. 

Students should also be familiarized with inserting catheters to people with male and female anatomy, the report said.

Sometimes a catheter can be fitted in c-sections.

Section 4.4 contains several photos of a catheter fitting on the penis and scrotum of a male figurine.

The instructions state that you should wrap a sterilized swab around your penis. If possible, use the non-touch technique to retract the skin.

“Place a sterile towel over the person’s legs, making sure the scrotal region is covered,” adds one.

Recommendations for pregnant women include different dosages of analgesic gel, with 6ml being for women and 11ml respectively for men.

Students should be extra careful with male persons who have prostate glands. This is a condition that only biological men can experience. 

It claimed that removing the catheter could cause a ‘discomfort when the balloon is passed through the prostate gland’. 

Professor Susan Bewley of obstetrics at King’s College London described the course as “puzzling”.

Reduxx quoted her saying, “There is no circumstance where qualified midwives could possibly be asked or expected to catheterise penis in their professional work.”

“The writers appear to have been left with a remarkable lack of knowledge about biology, anatomy and sexuality.”

Reduxx claims the handbook was edited by them to eliminate any suggestion that biological men can become pregnant.

However, it claims now that even if a woman has had her penis surgically reconstructed through a Phalloplasty, a biological mother can have a baby. 

Dr Bewley stated that “a few” were the best. [female-to-males]However, genital surgery is performed. In general, patients with a surgically-created neopenis cannot get pregnant. They must undergo a hysterectomy prelude.

“These materials are not the best training for patients that midwives or doctors need.” 

“The idea for the project was born out of compassion and excitement, but it’s concerning that writers seem to not know, care about or verify facts.

The three-year midwifery course at Edinburgh Napier costs £1,820 per year to Scottish students, which is subsidised by the Government.

Students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland have to pay £9,250 annually.
