    First US Child Born From Deceased Uterus Donor

    A woman who received a uterus transplant from a dead donor has given birth to a baby girl at the Cleveland Clinic — only the second such birth worldwide. The success provides hope to thousands of prospective mothers born without a uterus or who had theirs removed. The 30-something mother, whose name was not released, underwent in vitro fertilization and delivery via cesarean as part of a research trial involving 10 women with uterine factor infertility.

    Have there been other success stories? Two other women in the Cleveland Clinic trial have received transplants and are awaiting embryo transfers.
