The BBC reports that a 36-year-old woman, born without a uterus, gave birth to a premature but healthy baby. The woman received the womb from a 61-year-old friend and, a year after transplant, they implanted "one of the frozen embryos and a pregnancy ensued."
"Our success is based on more than 10 years of intensive animal research and surgical training by our team and opens up the possibility of treating many young females worldwide that suffer from uterine infertility."
Liza Johannesson, a gynaecological surgeon in the team, said: "It gives hope to those women and men that thought they would never have a child, that thought they were out of hope."
