trans-parenting, gamete preservation, in vitro fertilization, separation

Owners of a farm cooperative, Jenna and Eby started their family through insemination. Jenna, being a trans woman, she had her gametes frozen before starting a medical transition. Eby carried their two children: Simone, who is now 9 years old, and Aude, who is now 7 years old. The grandparents are very important in the children’s lives, even if they live far from the family.

Jenna and Eby encountered some obstacles while creating their family. At their first fertility clinic consultation, they experienced abuse and discrimination, for which they made official complaints. Fortunately, they were able to find a clinic where they received very good services. Jenna and Eby are now separated, but they remain close and have a good relationship. Both parents now have new partners who are part of their families. Simone and Aude are very well surrounded.
