Womb Transplant Results in Birth

Bradley Mattes   |   December 17, 2014

Medical history was made by a Swedish woman in her thirties.  She was born with functioning ovaries but had no womb.  This genetic condition happens to one in five-thousand women.  Doctors enrolled her in a research program on womb transplantation.  A friend who had passed menopause donated her womb to the young woman.  She and her husband became pregnant—both being the biological parents of a baby boy born this fall.  The boy’s name is Vincent, which means “to conquer.”  The doctors are working with eight other couples, two of which were pregnant and more than half way through their pregnancies.  Many other couples who face the same situation are watching this medical trial carefully, hoping it will make it possible for them to also have their own biological children.
