October 4 , 2014
In the first such medical case of its kind, a Swedish woman with a transplanted womb gave birth to a baby boy.
The 36-year-old woman was born without a uterus. She got a donated womb from a woman who is in her 60s, reports said. The baby, born prematurely last month, weighed 1.8kg, according to the Lancet medical journal.
The identity of the Swedish couple is not known, but the mother is said to have functioning ovaries.
