Doctors have delivered the second baby born to a woman following a uterus transplant from a living donor. The little girl was born via cesarean section weighing 6lbs 7oz, with no complications, at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, medics confirmed today.
The mother, who has not been identified, was born without a uterus due to a syndrome called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH), meaning she always thought pregnancy and childbirth were not anoption for her.However, that changed when she became one of the eight women selected to receive a womb from a donor, six living, two deceased as part of Baylor’s ground breaking endeavor in 2016.
While four suffered complications that led to their removal, this is the second to prove a resounding success.Some women are born with a syndrome known as MRKH (Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser), which means their womb never developed properly.
Others lose their wombs to cervical cancer.
