unexpected things happen in life one after the other

Do I think this drama should’ve been from the point of view of a trans man? Yes. 

Do I also understand that the issues this drama brings up more people would be willing to listen if it was portrayed through the eyes of a cisgender man? Sadly also yes.

I went into this drama very sceptical and had been sceptical about it ever since I read the plot description because storylines like this one almost always tread in transphobic waters. But I came out of this drama pleasantly surprised. The writers knew exactly what they were doing to grab people's attention, bringing awareness to topics that sadly society doesn't take seriously from pregnant people. The discussion on the idea of what "roles" men and women "should" take when it comes to having and raising a child was done brilliantly. Every member of the cast did an amazing job at portraying this story with such care.

The one thing I am a little disappointed on is after really the first episode the erasure and lack of mentioning of pregnant trans men and how they could most likely relate to a lot of the struggles and curiousity that we see multiple of the pregnant cis men go through within the drama. But other than that I did enjoy this drama and I think it did exactly what it was set out to do.
