A Swedish woman became the first in the world to become pregnant after having a womb transplant and now she delivered a healthy 6-pound, 3-ounce baby boy through Cesarean section.
In 2017, the womb transplantation was done by a robot at Sahlgrenska University Hospital. The doctors announced the pregnancy in January.
“This is an extremely important step towards developing the surgery involved in uterine transplantation and its safety,” said Professor Mats Brännström, who was the team leader.
The professor added, “For the first time, we’re showing that the less invasive robot-assisted surgical technique is practical.”
