This American woman was born with the Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH), i.e. without a uterus. She lived “convinced she would never be able to get pregnant or have a baby”. However, she has just given birth to a baby girl at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, following a uterus transplant.
The first baby following such an operation was born in Sweden in 2014 . In the United States, a baby was born in Dallas in 2017, also to a mother affected with the Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome.
The hospital did not reveal “the mother’s identity, but asserted that the pregnancy and delivery went smoothly”.
 The uterus transplant was conducted by the gynaecologist and transplant specialist Liza Johannesson.
