  • A doctor at BCH claimed in a video put out by the hospital that some transgender patients know their gender identity “as early as seemingly from the womb.”
  • “They will usually express their gender identity as very young children, some as soon as they can talk, they might say phrases such as ‘I’m a girl’ or ‘I’m a boy’ or ‘I’m going to be a woman’ or ‘I’m going to be a mom,’” Dr. Kerry McGregor, a psychologist at BCH’s Gender Multispecialty Service clinic, said in the video.
  • “Kids know very, very early.” McGregor also said that the clinic serves patients as young as age 2 or 3.
