A baby has been delivered using a uterus transplanted from a deceased donor

Cleveland Clinic has announced a huge medical breakthrough. "A baby girl born last year at Cleveland Clinic has made history. She was the first baby in North America delivered by a mother who received a uterus transplant from a deceased donor. You’re probably familiar with the idea of a kidney, liver or heart transplant, but uterine transplant is a rapidly evolving field, says maternal-fetal medicine specialist Uma Perni, MD, who was part of the mother’s care team. For the first time in the United States a baby was delivered from the transplanted uterus of a deceased donor. The baby girl was born by C-section at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. So far, births from transplanted uteri have only been delivered by C-section. This video is graphic but shows the incredible results. Amazing.
