Womb transplant babies expected next year

15 January 2014

  • The women were either born without a womb or had theirs removed because of cervical cancer - they received the transplants from living relatives
  • They will now have IVF treatment to implant embryos into their wombs
  • They are not able to conceive naturally as the wombs were not connected to their fallopian tubes - but they have previously had embryos frozen
  • Previous attempts to transplant a womb - one in Saudi Arabia and one in Turkey - both failed to produce a baby but the Turkish woman did conceive
  • She later had a miscarriage after two months of pregnancy
