First baby born after uterus transplantation

In early September, the ongoing research project on uterus transplantation at University of Gothenburg reached a groundbreaking step. One of the women gave birth to a baby boy, making her the first in the world to deliver a child from a transplanted uterus. Her uterus was donated by a 61-year-old unrelated woman.

This is considered as a major breakthrough. Now, research teams around the world await the results of the study.So far the university has treated nine women in total, two of whom had to have their transplanted wombs removed. The pregnancy attempts are ongoing with the other six women in the project.
