A landmark court ruling in France saw a trans woman be registered as her child’s mother on the baby’s birth certificate. A court of appeal in Toulouse determined that the mother could be listed as such after a civil registrar reportedly refused to do so in 2014.

The couple, who remain unnamed at this time and have three children together, first took legal action in 2016 in order to have the trans mother referred to as the “biological parent” on the document.

This was rejected by a judge the same year, who said “impossible for two people of the same sex to be the biological parents of a child”.
