You can edit the profile to remove the subject as father and add as mother. This change will not delete any profiles.

Hi Kaylyn! Welcome to G2G.

To expand on Trish's answer, in case this isn't obvious, in the Edit window for the profile, on the right hand side under Edit Family, click on the "replace/remove father" link. In the new window that opens, go to the very bottom of the page and click the "Remove Father" button. After that, add the profile again as the mother: click "add mother" then enter the WikiTree identifier of the mother in the box and click the GO button.

Thank you!
