First baby born from a transplanted womb

Dec 05, 2018 12:31 IST

A big milestone in the world of medical science as a healthy baby girl was born using a womb transplanted from a dead body. The 10-hour transplant operation had taken place in Brazil, in 2016 and involved connecting veins from the donor uterus with the recipient's veins, as well as linking arteries, ligaments and vaginal canals. 10 previous attempts of uterus transplants have been unsuccessful. The mother, 32, was born without a womb.
