"Frank, clever, and easy to process, MacDonald’s book serves as a refreshing and insightful narrative." - Publishers Weekly

IN A TIME when to most people “pregnancy” automatically means “motherhood,” what is it like to get pregnant, give birth, and breastfeed a child – all while being an out transgender man?
When Trevor MacDonald decided to start a family, he knew that the world was going to have questions for him.  Luckily for the reader, Trevor responds with grace and humour.  His stories convey the intimate and sometimes surprising realities of the transgender parenting experience. This memoir is a book about being a breastfeeding parent and a transgender man, and the many beautiful, moving, and difficult ways these two identities collide. “Where’s the Mother?” is a memoir like no other.
