(Newser) – Two women in their 30s unable to have kids now might be able to—thanks to their moms. Swedish surgeons have performed the first mother-to-daughter uterus transplants, reports the BBC. All four patients are recovering well, but "we are not going to call it a complete success until this results in children,” one of the doctors tells the AP. “That’s the best proof.” The first successful womb transplant took place last year in Turkey, but the recipient apparently hasn't started fertility treatment yet, unlike the Swedish recipients.

It is amazing to see the variety of passion for child birthing.. These people and Invetro people pay a lot of cash for the privilege of child birth.. Then there are people who want to use Abortion for a means of birth control.. It just sad on both accounts.
