Uterus transplant took over a year to prove successful, doctors say

University Medical Center the first baby born as a result of a womb transplant in the United States lies in the neonatal unit at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas

The doctors who helped deliver the first American baby born from a transplanted uterus opened up about the medical milestone, one of them telling ABC News, "this little boy will stay with us for our entire life".

A birth from a transplanted uterus is a milestone for the USA but one achieved several years ago in Sweden.

The hospital would give no further information on how many transplants have been performed since then. While three have been unsuccessful and one woman is now pregnant, the remaining four women are in different stages of the transplant process, and doctors say the baby offers them hope.

A news conference was scheduled Monday to discuss the Dallas baby's birth.

Dr Liza Johannesson, a transplant surgeon at Baylor who was also part of the team that performed the first womb transplants in Sweden, told Time magazine that veteran surgeons were crying when the child was born.

As of a year ago, his record reportedly includes eight babies born from transplants.

A womb transplant program at Baylor has been under way since previous year, and surgeons there have completed eight in a medical trial of 10 transplants, according to Time.

Wombs for transplant can be from either deceased or living donors, and the Baylor study aims to use some of both.

The first attempted uterus transplant in the United States in February 2016 at the Cleveland Clinic in OH, from a deceased donor, failed because of a yeast infection. The ones done in Sweden were from live donors, mostly from the recipients' mother or a sister. To be eligible for the Baylor study, women must be 20 to 35 years old and have healthy, normal ovaries.

After the uterus transplant, the embryos can be thawed and implanted, at least a year after the transplant to make sure the womb is working well. The wombs are not meant to be permanent.

A doctor in Sweden, Mats Brannstrom, is the first in the world to deliver a baby as a result of a uterus transplant. They have declined to identify the mother, who was born without a uterus. The group is convening experts to develop guidelines for programs that want to offer this service.
