The 36-year-old woman struggled with infertility issues for a long time until the doctors implanted in her a new womb, which was donated by her friend.

The woman who gave birth after given the new womb was suffering from a congenital disorder called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser. Eight other Swedish women were given uterine transplant from 2012 to 2013.2034db32-481f-11e4-_777445c

The new wombs were given mostly by their family members, even their mothers. The 36-year-old woman received her new womb from a 61-year-old friend who went through menopause seven years before the surgery in 2013.

According to the baby’s father, they went through a tough journey for so many years, but now they have an amazing baby. He said their baby is just like any other child, but he will have a better story to tell.
