A woman gave birth following a uterus transplant for the first time in the United States, doctors at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas recently announced.

The uterus that was transplanted to the mother of the baby comes from a nurse named Taylor Siler, 36, who also lives in Dallas.

"This first live birth to a uterus transplant recipient in the United States was a milestone in our work to solve absolute uterine factor infertility; but, more importantly, a handsome moment of love and hope for a mother who had been told she would never be able to carry her own child". The woman who gave birth on Friday - the hospital is not identifying her - was born without a uterus.

So far, all the other babies born to women with uterus transplants were born Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden. Doug Lawson, PhD, president of Baylor University Medical Center, said, "This baby, born to a mother who could not otherwise have carried her own child, represents the ultimate success of this program, and we are honored to have been part of this milestone for her". In October 2016, the hospital said four women had received transplants but that three of the wombs had to be removed because of poor blood flow.

A uterus transplant involves several steps, according to Baylor's website outlining its uterus transplant clinical trial.

"My personal opinion is that this is going to affect many women in the United States", he said. And babies are born via cesarean section to prevent uterine rupture.

Baylor, which launched its womb transplant program past year, has completed eight out of 10 planned uterus transplants. It's the first time the surgery has worked outside of the Swedish hospital that pioneered the procedure.

The fact that the uterus transplant success in Sweden can be replicated is a promising sign for thousands of women who have been unable to conceive.

The uterus surgeries differ from other transplants in one major way: They're not meant to be permanent. As of past year, he had delivered five babies from women with donated wombs.

Womb donors can be dead or alive, and the Baylor study aims to use some of both. If that is the case, an embryo is eventually placed in the transplanted uterus. The ones done in Sweden were from live donors, mostly from the recipients' mother or a sister. First, the woman's eggs are harvested, fertilized and frozen through in vitro fertilization.
