Ottoson, 25, of Stockholm, Sweden, could be the first woman to bear a child
using the same womb in which she was conceived and carried to term. Ottoson,
who was born without a uterus, will undergo an experimental
treatment to have her mother’s uterus transplanted into her. “It’s the only way my daughter can have a child by
herself,” Eva Ottoson, 56, Sara’s mother, told BBC News. Eva Ottoson offered to
donate her uterus in the hope that her daughter could give birth one day. In 2000,
surgeons in Saudi Arabia attempted to transplant a uterus into a 26-year-old
woman – but the uterus was removed almost 4 months later due to complications.
