One of the nation's top children's hospitals has generated controversy over a video claiming that some children know their gender identity before they are born.

Boston Children's Hospital posted a video on their YouTube channel in August where a psychologist explains that "a good portion" of children she sees at the hospital's Gender MultiSpecialty Service (GeMS) clinic know their gender identity "from the womb," according to video captured first by The Daily Mail.

The video features the text, "Caring for young transgender kids."  An ultrasound of a fetus is shown.

"Kids know very, very early," the psychologist claims. "We see a variety of young children, all the way down to ages 2 and 3 and usually up to the ages of 9." Boston Children's did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital about the video.
