First U.S. Baby Born After Uterus Transplant

Source: The Daily Beast




A woman born without a uterus has given birth to a baby for the first time within the United States, Time reported Friday. The woman, who asked not to be identified for privacy, gave birth Friday at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, which has been one of the few in America to launch and perfect the process of uterus transplants. The very first uterus transplant, in Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg in Sweden, led to eight subsequent births. This birth is the first after the Swedish case to be successful. Dr. Liza Johannesson, a uterus transplant expert on the team, said it paved the path for future solutions for women born without uteruses to viably have children. “We were very proud of the first birth in Sweden,” she said in a statement. “But this birth is what’s going to make the field grow, because this is the first time this has been replicated anywhere else. This step is equally, if not even more, important.”
