Future of the Uterus & Bioengineered Wombs – the end of Surrogacy?
Did you know that women are helping women by transplanting their healthy uterus into another women so they can have the chance at having a child. Even though after receiving the uterus the women would have to go through IVF to implant their baby.
I found this article about how a mother helped her daughter achieve the miracle of becoming a mother by doing a uterus transplant. And in September 2014 she was able to give birth to her first son. This was the first ever birth from a transplanted uterus. This study was conducted by Mats Brannstrom a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the university of Gothenburg in Sweden.
I highly doubt that this is the end of surrogacy, but it certainly opens more options for women having trouble conceiving.
