First Time in History! Woman gives birth with Robot transplanted womb

In 2017 history was made when a robot successfully transplanted the womb of a Swedish woman at Sahlgrenska University Hospital.  The process involves removing the womb or uterus of a woman who cannot have a baby and in its place transplanting one donated by another healthy woman.

In January it was announced that the unnamed Swedish woman is pregnant and on Sunday she gave birth to a healthy boy and the names of both mother and son are kept under wraps.  Professor Mats Brännström, who led the procedure, said: 'This is an extremely important step towards developing the surgery involved in uterine transplantation, and its safety. For the first time, we’re showing that the less invasive robot-assisted surgical technique is practicable.'
