I am in process of sorting out some rather complicated info about my past, I came across some records (surgical) of mine that refer to some info that is typical to males, I am female (though these surgeries where when I was very young) and a mother of one (biological was pregnant and carried to term) Both myself and my daughter have some pretty big health issues in terms of my pelvic formation and my daughter has some issues that appear to have started in utero as a result of my shape, I delivered naturally (with epidural freezing) and the birth was quite traumatic for both of us, we have had very little success with doctors, and family disclosing information or solutions. I am feeling like we need to have the support of a community of people that not only understand more on this subject, but can offer suggestions of where to find good people who can and will help, with legal, medical advocacy.
