A Second North Texas Baby Is Born to a Mom Who Received a Uterine Transplant

Pictured is the second baby ever born in the U.S. to a mother who had a uterine transplant.

Baylor Scott & White Health said this week that a second mother has given birth after receiving a uterine transplant through its ongoing clinical trial. The babies, both born at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, are the only two in the U.S. to be birthed by mothers who have received the transplant. The first came in December.

The participants in the trial either did not have a uterus or had a uterus that didn’t function as intended prior to receiving the transplants. Baylor performed North America’s first four living-donor uterine transplants in September of 2016.
