About The Donor

The details of the womb donor were also shared and it was revealed that the donor was a 45-year-old woman who had died from a stroke that caused bleeding on the surface of the brain. The woman's uterus was removed and it was transplanted into a 32-year-old woman. The operation lasted for 10.5 h.


The Surgery

The woman who was suffering from Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome could not conceive and hence opted to get pregnant via a womb transplant process.

The surgeons had to connect the donor uterus to the recipients' veins, arteries, ligaments, and also vaginal canal.

According to medics, around one in 500 women have some type of uterine abnormality which makes it impossible to carry a child to term. Researchers reveal that some forms of infertility affect up to 15 per cent of women of reproductive age.
