World’s first baby born from transplanted womb

World first womb-transplant baby born in Sweden

A woman in Sweden has given birth to a baby boy using a transplanted womb, in a medical first, doctors report. The 36-year-old mother, who was born without a uterus, received a donated womb from a friend in her 60s.

The British medical journal The Lancet says the baby was born prematurely in September weighing 1.8kg (3.9lb). The father said his son was "amazing". Cancer treatment and birth defects are the main reasons women can be left without a functioning womb.
