A mother has given birth to a healthy baby girl after surgeons implanted a womb in her body from a deceased donor.

There have been 10 uterus transplants from deceased donors attempted in the US, the Czech Republic, and Turkey, but this is the first one which resulted in a live birth.

The success demonstrated in Brazil has improved her chances for one UK cancer survivor Hayley Brown to have a baby.

She says she would ‘love the opportunity’ to go through a normal pregnancy.
