Aydian and Jenilee Prepare for Transgender Parenthood (The Creation Of Us - E3)
|A new baby is on the way and Trans Activist and motivational Speaker Aydian Dowling, and his wife, Jenilee, are clearly focused on planning for the future. This involves the need to think through how all the new things and new experiences they are going through will fit into their already crazy lifestyle.|
In this episode, we follow Aydian and Jenilee through some of their daily activities as they prepare for the rapidly approaching time when they will become parents. They start their day with pre-natal yoga. Jenilee, feeling stronger in her second trimester, has been practicing alone for a few weeks but wants to be more closely connected with Aydian while doing the things that make her feel good. Aydian also wants to be supportive through all of her changes. "Doing prenatal yoga with her is important," he explained. "She is going through so many changes with her body. It will be nice for me to understand what kind of movements she can and can't do."
The couple then heads out to shop for some upcoming travel. Aydian is excited that Jenilee will join him on this business trip, which is unusual. They want to be able to spend time together, especially during this exciting time, and will also be squeezing in a family visit so they can share some of their joy.
Aydian loves the idea of becoming a Dad, but it also comes with concerns about managing his time, the additional financial strains, and a host of changes in normal routines. He also lives with the reality that many people do not know anything about a transgender person and is unsure how he will relate to them. "This baby, biologically, is not from me," he explains." I do have some insecurities about what is going through another person's mind. Often, they don't even know what being Trans is."
Despite all the uncertainty, Aydian and Jenilee have been powerfully drawn together during their journey through the entire process together. "For my body to be able to take care of this part and actually grow the baby that is ours, feels really powerful and incredible," she beams. "It's the most amazing gift I can give to him, and us."
