First ever baby born through womb transplant-Video
A woman in Sweden has achieved a medical first after giving birth to a health baby boy following a womb transplant.
The world’s first womb swap baby, named as Vincent, has already been delivered using an unrelated donor.
Her baby boy was born prematurely by cesarean section but is healthy and mother and child are now at home and doing well.
The Swedish woman had healthy ovaries, but she was born without a uterus – a syndrome seen in one girl in 4,500.
Now doctors are preparing for two more arrivals – but this time each one is being nurtured in its grandmother’s womb.
