baby girl

The world's first baby was born to a Brazilian woman who had a uterus transplanted from a deceased donor. The 32-year-old woman delivered the baby girl via C-section in December 2017.

The baby is the world's first to be born from a donor uterus that was transplanted from a woman who had recently died.

The birth mom was born without a uterus. The 45-year-old deceased donor died from a stroke.

Doctors connected the donor uterus by linking it to the woman's vaginal canal and attaching veins, arteries and ligaments to the uterus.

The uterus was removed after the baby was delivered when the mother showed signs of rejection.

In order to keep the uterus after birth, the mother would have to continue taking immune system suppression drugs to keep the body from rejecting the organ.

A dozen babies have been born from live donor transplants around the world. The latest was born in 2017 at a hospital in Dallas, Texas.

Doctors are hailing the baby's birth as a breakthrough for women with fertility issues or women who born with a uterus who want to carry their own babies.

Women who have irreversible infertility are the primary candidates to receive a uterine transplant, according to doctors.

But doctors caution that the uterus transplant procedure is risky, very expensive and complicated.

Other risks include blood mismatch or severe infection of the transplanted uterus.

Doctors say adoptions and surrogate births are still the best options for women born without a uterus, or women with cancer and infertility issues.

Surrogate births carry lower risks and the cost is more affordable than a uterine transplant.

Uterus transplants from deceased donors would ideally come from a live family member who is willing to donate it upon their deaths. The pool of deceased donors is larger than live donor transplants.

"The surgery involved is extensive, and there is the needed for anti-rejection medication post-operatively," OB/GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton told ABC News. "While uterine surrogacy is legal in the U.S., this offers an option, albeit an extreme and expensive one, to women who want to carry their own baby."

The first uterus transplant for men is still years away. Doctors say science isn't advanced enough for men to give birth. Research is ongoing.

    I don't like this one bit.. next doctors will start purposely making women die cause of the high demand for good uteruses. And ain't it funny how a 45 year stroke victim has a good uterus and the baby was born all well and fine, yet they tell us getting pregnant after 35 is risky.

    My son will grow up in a time when the world is screwed, real Sodom and Gomorrah. Just as you said Sandra, "the first uterus transplant for men is still years away" it may be years away but i guarantee you it's gonna happen. Women internal insides will eventually go into a man and they are gonna be able to procreate.

    Sickening.

    No donor card is checked to give away my organs, no hospital gonna kill me off to get my body parts, I need to be buried with it all. Call me selfish if you want but my dna ain't running through no one. If my child needed it and it says I can donate my organ to family only after death, i'd be down, but that's not the case so leave me with my pieces.

  • bemetoo

    So now trannies can pay to have a uterus ???? and have a baby?

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    No! Nope! Un-uh! M2f transgenders are going to be flocking to Brazil for the chance to have a baby.

  • brooklyn23

    Right

  • Tiff J

    I think pregnancy after 35 has more to do with the age of the woman's eggs more than the age or condition of the uterus.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You know Auntie had to throw that one into the mix.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Uh no!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "The first uterus transplant for men is still years away."
    We don't ever have to worry about that. There aint a man in his right mind who wants one.
    We can't even get them to take care of the children they already have!

  • brooklyn23

    Human beings have no limits. If that ever comes to be, that men will be able to have babies that has to be the final word for this world to just be destroyed. That's obsurd

  • SpillyNillie

    Straight 100!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I've heard the rumor that if you have a organ donor card medical personnel may not try as hard to save your life.
    Now, you didn't hear that from me.

  • brooklyn23

    You crazy? Them he/shes are gonna wanna be down. For them that will be the icing on the cake. Them having a baby? They will really feel like they're a woman

  • SpillyNillie

    I'm sure research is ongoing like she stated and if it comes to pass, society is DOOMED...

  • tintin

    nope i don't agree. If a man can cut off his penis and have a vagina installed, he would be willing to get a uterus

    to make matters worse the government will pay for it.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I said, "in his right mind ".

    And now it starts, there will llllllllolllllllll. And let me say it again there will be a man next.....we are coming closer to the end of times as we know it....

  • ClaireHuxtable

    And it still won't make him a woman. He'll be a male with a uterus.
    They can try all they want, but they're still Not changing s3xes.

  • Trace da Ace

    hmmmm...not sure how I feel about this....all I can imagine now is folks selling uterus on the black market and stuff.....I'm gonna have to ponder over this and get back....maybe neva!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    My friend just passed 1 month ago. I was at the hospital for hours. I'm not sure doctors are fighting hard to keep anybody anymore. Especially if you are a person of color. I feel bad thinking that. Yet I think a lot of decisions have to do with your insurance and what it's willing to pay.

  • Renee26

    Cute baby... I'm going to act like I didn't read that last paragraph ?

  • Slim Goodie

    Deep comment, sis.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I doubt anyone wants my organs. I'm blind af since the 3rd grade. My kidneys are shriveling bc of salt. I used to smoke and have scar tissue on my lungs bc of lifelong asthma. I don't exercise nearly enough so I'm not sure about my heart. And I have roaches in my liver due to high alcohol consumption. If they can find anything useful though, they can have it

  • Coy little wink

    Have they ever donated a deceased kidney...heart...lung...liver...folks are on a waiting list for those organs....

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Thank God I was able to carry my own but if I had medical issues that would prevent me, I would just opt for surrogacy a that point.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Did you take reproductive biology in school?
    If you did it would be super expensive and would take years to perfect.
    But hey if you want to believe then you can.

  • xenaD

    So that’s the end game... men giving birth?! O ok

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Thank God your sense of humor is still in great shape!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't know if they look on your chart before they make a decision but they probably wouldn't know that none of your organs are viable until AFTER they cut you open.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    At some point, people are going to learn to stop playing god. It won't happen for a minute, but it's going to happen.

  • Chapter29Chick

    Idc when im dead they can take all my organs, i wont be needing them, plus i want 2 be cremated so might as well... hell they can take the uterus b4 i go, i dont want anymore bad azzz kids anyhow #bloop

  • bemetoo

    Shid the just gave this woman a new uterus

  • Yoni7

    THIS.....because my FIRST THOUGHT was...."where are they going to get these uteri from?" WHERE, Sway?

  • Yoni7

    I've always said this! You could have a chance 70/30 at living in your favor......until they see that license/donor permit. Newp.

  • Yoni7

    They'll take that beautiful heart and mind of yours. They WILL find SOMETHING useful. IDC if it's a dead toenail or rotten toof. It's going to be put to use.

  • Logan Roberts

    Let me hush ?

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

  • Prettybrowneound35

    I don’t want to be here when the rapture comes.

  • the chosen one

    I'll pass on that procedure. Some things you just don't do.

  • the guest

    Carrying a baby is truly a blessing, privilege, and honor.

    The scientific lengths created to make it possible is a reminder.

  • the guest

    When I looked at the photo, I could sense the baby wasn’t white then I read Brazil and I was right.

  • Truth

    Nope if you can’t have a baby adopt .When your kids get married now you have to do a full background check to make sure their mate was produced naturally.All these scientific babies being born does not seem right .I rather see a teen mom than this .

    I was JUST about to ask this question:
    The first uterus transplant for men is still years away. Doctors say science isn't advanced enough for men to give birth. Research is ongoing.

  • TheOwley

    Waiting for the dead woman's family to come forward and make some demands in 5.4.3.

  • Eileen

    I am so tired of doctors trying to play God!

  • Eileen

    yep you got a point look what happened to Henrietta Lacks! and her descendents are walking around with NOTHING and everybody else made gazillions, expecially the pharmaceutical industry....

  • Eileen

    Uh lets take it back to the garden you know the first women was a black women right!

  • lovelygamour

    So now we know where all the black girls who disappeared went. Everyone, don't have children you won't raise or they will end up an experiment. You see all these slow people with 6 kids. They can't keep track of them all. Plus how did the drs practices. Now that I'm older I agree with the old white guys who move to the forest. I don't want to be apart of a society with all these ivf/gene spliced/frozen/died womb kids. This is going to bring some type of disease.

  • Sid

    Doctors say science isn't advanced enough for men to give birth. Research is ongoing.

    But why though? It’s not meant for them to carry babies. I don’t get it.

  • CaramelDrop

    ??

  • CaramelDrop

    This is so scary. I was listening to Charles Capps podcast sermons the other day. He said, spirits or the devil have no authority on this earth. That God gave all power and authority on earth to man. He said the devil needs a body, a human vessel to operate on this earth.
    I can rationalize IVF and surrogacy, but taking from the dead and harvesting life in a barren vessel is where I draw the line!

    Call it a scientific “breakthrough” if you want. Chit looks like some ritualistic sacrifice type chit to me.

  • CaramelDrop

    “So now we know where all the black girls who disappeared went.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<<<<
    You know you might be on to something! We are the prototype for all mankind.
    Now, we will come off a lot of things for money but experimenting on/with body parts/organs isn’t one of them. Any harvest has to come from a person dead no more than 24 hrs?

  • kekeb

    Wow. This ia good news I guess. But now people are gonna be killing females and taking their UTERUS selling them on the black market.

  • MsPam

    Tell that to Jehovah on judgement day!

  • Maxx

    Funny as hell...bwhaaahaaa! Makes me feel good I got a hysterectomy & no kids..(although I was heartbroken at the time)

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Thank you. Some days it doesn't feel real. It's difficult to handle that things will never be the same.

  • Dahl

    Don’t say that to the people who believe they are women (when they physically are not) and should thus be able to bear life. Where is @chicagowise ? They gave a story about a man who was emotional saying he’d had a miscarriage, lordt...

  • LeeLee

    Holy water all ON dat DEMON CELL!! ???

  • Sinny

    I been changed that shat! They will kill you and try to save your organs first.

  • Jersey Girl

    I know that's right??! .. ..lol its just sad.. how we are the most hated and yet the most revered!!?

  • Psychic Lulu

    I was today years old when I found out there are women born without a uterus. Yes. I have burger heard of it. Whew

  • Psychic Lulu

    Now im thinking, how in THE hell did the uterus work all the way up until AFTER THE BABY WAS BORN. Chile, I aint looking into this. Im just gone find some ratchet gossip and carry on.

  • leapyearpisces

    I am sure you were, but all children are NOT blessings.

  • leapyearpisces

    The Medical Community play TOO MUCH.

  • leapyearpisces

    Leap AIN'T NEVA been an organ donor on my driver''s license, my daddy put me on game when I FIRST GOT MY LICENSE. ESPECIALLY WITH BEING 16...SHID!!!! You know they will want them young organs. I will go back in my will, and put a provision for organ donation, with family members having first dibbs if needed. However, I will NEVER have that on my DL. Nope.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Mannnnnnn the devils playground indeed

  • nicfury420

    I’m afraid what the long term consequences will be for all this remixing of God’s will. None of this should be legal. Especially men having babies. You can’t just pop in a uterus like a colored contact in to an environment that it does NOT belong. At least with the female transplants their bodies are naturally equipped to support it & its “natural” function. Quite frankly it sounds very selfish & no good can come from it. There are motherless children all over the world. Pick one!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Transsexuals want to carry babies. They are very close to making this happen this article says they are years away but I read an article maybe a year or two ago about a woman in the UK who birthed a child from a donor uterus and they mentioned in that article as well about males being able to have this done and they said they were close to being able to make this happen. I’d swear there was a war on women why is man trying to do everything without a woman? Making babies using NO egg only male dna so two men can have a baby trying to transplant wombs in men so they can carry a baby this is crazy

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Science scares me sometimes ?

  • Sinny

    Gospel! You have me thinking about putting a provision in my will for my organs, going to my family first. My brother just passed away, and we were able to WILLINGLY donate his organs, because no one in our family was in need at that time. But it’s definurelt scary out here, and these folks can’t be trusted.
