Baby Gender Options in Germany

Germany Allows Parents to Pick a Third, Neutral Gender For Their Baby

Gender reveal parties just got a little more complicated. In addition to the traditional "male" and "female" options, Germany has added a third "indeterminate" gender to birth certificates for babies who don't fall under either gender.
