Quick info

In Sweden alone there are approximately 2,000–3,000 women who are childless because of an dysfunctional or missing uterus.

At the Sahlengrenska Academy, the University of Gothenburg and the Sahlgrenska University Hospital a research project has been ongoing since 1999 which aims to provide women with the possibility of having biological children with the aid of a transplanted uterus.

After careful planning nine women have recieved a new uterus from transplantation. In September 2014, the first transplanted woman delivered a baby – a healthy and normally developed boy.
