    Default The First Baby Has Been Born After a Uterus Transplant From a Deceased Donor

    The world’s first baby born by a uterus transplant from a deceased donor is healthy and nearing her first birthday, according to a new case study published Tuesday in the Lancet.
    Uterus transplants have become more common in recent years, resulting in 11 live births around the world. But all of the other successful deliveries so far have been made possible by living donors — often women who opt to donate their uterus to a close friend or family member without one. The birth resulting from the case detailed in the Lancet, which took place at Brazil’s Hospital das Cli?nicas last December, is both the first in the world to involve a uterus from a deceased woman, and the first from any uterus transplant in Latin America.

    Wow! Such an amazing story on so many levels. Although the article wasn't crystal clear on this point, it seemed to intimate that the deceased donor was used because she matched the special requirements of the "would be" mother, who had a special condition. Surprised the uterus was removed after the birth. It is amazing what some women endure to be mothers. My relative spent thousands of dollars on fertility treatments that ultimately did not work for her....expensive and disappointing, but all worth her.
