First baby from uterus transplant in United States born in Dallas

And a medical breakthrough in the United States.

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

The first birth following uterus transplantation occurred in September 2014 by a 35-year-old woman who received the womb of a 61-year-old woman. Each of the women had absolute uterine factor infertility (AUFI), which means they had a non-existent or non-functioning uterus.

It's part of the hospital's uterus transplant clinical trial.

A woman in Dallas recently became the first person in the United States born without a uterus to successfully give birth, Time reported Friday.

The first uterus transplant trial took place in Sweden, where there were five live births. However, the nation's first such transplant failed due to a fungal infection that compromised blood flow to the uterus.

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

Dr. Liza Johannesson, an ob-gyn and transplant surgeon at Baylor who also worked on uterine transplants in Sweden, told Time, "We've been waiting for this moment for a very long time". Baylor doctors were assisted by a Swedish medical team during the procedures.

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.
