Baylor University Medical Center, where the baby was born , has had a study underway for several years to A woman who had been born without a uterus gave birth to the baby at Baylor University Medical Center A baby resulting from a uterine transplant would be delivered by caesarean section.

Two babies have been born at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Uterus Transplantation provides a promising potential treatment for women with absolute uterine factor infertility (AUI). Following this major milestone, a second baby was born to another recipient in the trial in March 2018.

The donated uterus was the gift of an "altruistic living donor," meaning the uterus came from a living person and neither the donor nor recipient know the identity of the other.

The trial considers the option for women with absolute uterine factor infertility and the procedure is not yet available outside of clinical trials.
