That’s interesting, but wow. Transplants are serious business and come with a really high incidence of rejection. I don’t think I would do all of that to have a baby. It’s such a huge medical risk, that I don’t think I would do unless it was a medically necessary thing for life. (I am definitely biased though because I’ve recently watched an immediate family member go through the transplant process, have rejection, need to have it removed, and is still only now starting to recover from the second surgery like 4 months later).

It’s interesting that they wil l remove the uterus once the baby is born, I guess that will spare her the lifelong consequences of anti rejection drugs. I’m pretty sure that I would opt for surrogacy over a donor uterus, but it’s certainly impressive!

Wow – That’s really neat.  I hope the transplant is able to successfully carry the pregnancy to term.

Wow! Science is amazing. Seems like a massive risk though – don’t think I could go through that.

@MrsYoshida:  I don’t know.  While I can appreciate someone wanting to experience pregnancy and wanting to have their own child – I think the lengths some people go go are…not healthy.  This would be one of those times.
