While the birth of a healthy baby by a woman with a transplanted uterus was a medical first in the United States, it follows several childbirths by women with transplanted uteruses at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg in Sweden, said Civale. She underwent the transplant more than a year ago.

The hospital would give no further information on how many transplants have been performed since then.

Baylor officials said Monday that eight transplants have been performed and that one of those women now is pregnant as a result.

A news conference was scheduled Monday to discuss the Dallas baby's birth.

This is the first baby to result from the transplants, occurring after one of the four confirmed operations; three other transplants reportedly failed.

Baylor has had a study underway for several years to enroll up to 10 women for uterus transplants.

A womb transplant program at Baylor has been under way since past year, and surgeons there have completed eight in a medical trial of 10 transplants, according to Time.

The first attempted uterus transplant in the United States in February 2016 at the Cleveland Clinic in OH, from a deceased donor, failed because of a yeast infection. Last month, Penn Medicine in Philadelphia announced that it also would start offering womb transplants. The ones done in Sweden were from live donors, mostly from the recipients' mother or a sister.

According to the study, participants ranged in age from 20 to 35 years old with functioning ovaries. They will first have in vitro fertilization to retrieve and fertilize their eggs and produce embryos that can be frozen until they are ready to attempt pregnancy. A baby resulting from a uterine transplant would be delivered by cesarean section.

A doctor in Sweden, Mats Brannstrom, is the first in the world to deliver a baby as a result of a uterus transplant.

As part of the ongoing study at Baylor, researchers have completed a total of eight uterus transplants, including the one in the mother who just gave birth. The group is convening experts to develop guidelines for programs that want to offer this service.
