First baby born from womb transplant in US

    2017-12-04  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE first baby conceived by a mother who received a womb transplant was born in the United States, a medical center in Texas said Friday.

The Baylor Scott & White Medical Center at Dallas, about 400 km north of Houston, said in a video posted to their Twitter account that the delivery of a boy “is a breakthrough in medical research and a major milestone in a landmark clinical trial.”

The new mother received the womb from Taylor Siler, mother-of-two nurse who lived near the hospital, reports said.

“I have family members who struggled to have babies, and it’s not fair. I just think that if we can give more people that option, that’s an awesome thing,” Siler was quoted as saying by Time.

The center performed four womb transplants in September 2016, assisted by a Swedish medical team. Three of the transplants failed but the fourth led to the first birth in the U.S.

The Cleveland Clinic, a multispeciality academic hospital located in Cleveland, Ohio, was the first to start a clinical trial in the country to help women give birth through womb transplants.

This is, however, not the first case in the world. Mats Brannstrom, a doctor in Sweden, is the first in the world to deliver a baby from a uterus transplant. Last year, Brannstrom was said to have delivered five such babies. Worldwide, there have been 16 cases of uterus transplants to date.
