A Harvard-affiliated children's hospital has sparked outrage after claiming some babies know they are transgender 'from the womb'.

In a now-deleted video, the Boston Children's Hospital suggested an even larger number of minors know 'as soon as they can talk'.

Critics told DailyMail.com the claim was was not based on science and indicated medics at the clinic are unwilling to question children who are often vulnerable and troubled.

The hospital, part of the Harvard University medical system, also faces claims it rushed under-18s into life-altering sex change surgery.

In the clip posted to the Boston hospital's official website sometime during summer, psychologist Dr Kerry McGregor explains the type of patients she sees.

She says: 'So most of the patients we have in the clinic actually know their gender, usually around the age of puberty.

'But a good portion of children do know as early as - seemingly - from the womb.

'And they will usually express their gender identity as very young children, some as soon as they can talk... kids know very, very early.' 

It comes as several states begin to clamp down on puberty-blocking drugs in children, which Texas Gov. Abbott described as 'child abuse'. 

The Boston clinic sees children as young as two and three usually up to the age of nine. New patients come to the clinic and meet with psychologists to discuss their issues with the sex they were born into

Dr Jay Richards, from the right-wing Heritage Foundation, told the DailyMail.com that this type of gender-affirming care is 'simply a concept imposed on the actions of kids by gender ideologues.' 

Dr Richards said it was another sign of the 'social contagion' that is increasingly creeping into medicine. 

'I think even 25 years ago, this would have been unthinkable,' he told DailyMail.com.

New patients come to the clinic and meet with psychologists to discuss their issues with the sex they were born into before exploring medical routes.

The clinic also offers that child 'space and support' to explore their gender. 

Dr Richards told DailyMail.com: 'Some kids conform more or less closely to gender stereotypes. 

'This tells us nothing about their 'gender identity,' a concept that no child has on his or her own, that no one had until recently, and that doesn’t even have a stable definition.'

The above map shows the population of transgender adults and children across America in 2020, according to the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles. Its estimate for children aged 13 to 17 has doubled since 2017. It shows the highest population is in southern states, followed by those along the east coast

'Based on a series of events that I think, mostly due to social contagion plus the kind of ideological commitment, many now consider these the proper standard of care for kids with gender dysphoria and Boston Children's Hospital is just one of the first ones to do it,' Dr Richards said.

Boston Children's Hospital is also embroiled in scandal over now-deleted guidance that allowed 17-year-olds to undergo irreversible gender transition surgery.

It was revealed by a reporter at the The Post Millennial in August that people under 18 had been permitted to undergo a hysterectomy as well as vaginoplasty, or the surgical construction of female reproductive genitalia on a boy, or a hysterectomy.

How gender dysphoria rates among children have DOUBLED since 2017 - with 300,000 teens now identifying as trans 

The number of children with gender dysphoria has exploded in recent years, giving rise to the use of powerful puberty-blocking drugs.

About 300,000 children aged between 13 and 17 (1.4 per cent) in the US identify as transgender, according to most recent estimates from 2020.

That is double the number estimated to be transgender in 2017 in a previous report by the same researchers, though they
