First baby born after deceased womb transplant

First baby born after deceased womb transplant A healthy baby girl has been born using a womb transplanted from a dead body.

The 10-hour transplant operation - and later fertility treatment - took place in São Paulo, Brazil, in 2016. The mother, 32, was born without a womb.

There have been 39 womb transplants using a live donor, including mothers donating their womb to their daughter, resulting in 11 babies.

But the 10 previous transplants from a dead donor have failed or resulted in miscarriage. BBC News
