Medical Miracle: The First Woman Ever To Have Successful Uterus Transplant Is Pregnant

This new medical breakthrough from Antalya, Turkey have given hope to millions of couples all over the world who want to become parents.
Derya Sert, the first woman ever to receive a uterus transplant from a deceased donor, is reportedly pregnant 18 months after the procedure. The 22-year-old was given IVF treatment using her own eggs once doctors were sure that her new uterus was functioning correctly.

This will also be great news, of course, for women who have had their uterus removed due to medical conditions such as cancer.
Although the mother-to-be is reported to be in excellent health, experts have warned that the pregnancy does not come without its risks. Ms Sert will have to be monitored extremely closely throughout her pregnancy, and the baby will most likely be delivered by Caesarean section. Wow, what a miracle!!!
