Hopes for first womb transplant baby

• http://www.telegraph.co.uk, By Richard Orange
 A woman is on course to become the first in the world to give birth from a transplanted womb, after doctors successfully introduced an embryo into her body.

The embryo was transferred last week, months after the unidentified woman, who has a genetic condition that means she was born without a womb, became one of nine to receive pioneering transplants last year.

The transplanted womb was donated by the woman’s mother, so a baby would also be the first born to a woman using the same womb from which she emerged herself.

The egg from which the embryo was grown was the woman’s own. The development in Sweden holds out hope for up to 200,000 women in Europe, including thousands in Britain.
