British Mom to Donate Womb To Her Daughter

British Mom to Donate Womb To Her Daughter

Talk about motherly devotion: A 56-year-old British woman has agreed to donate her uterus to her daughter so that the younger woman can have a baby. The pioneering surgery, scheduled to happen next year in Sweden, will be the world's first mother-to-daughter womb transplant.

Eva Ottosson's daughter Sara, was born without a uterus. When researchers in Sweden told her that the transplant was possible, and that her mother would be the best donor, the two agreed it was worth a shot. The Telegraph reports that "if the transplant is successful Sara...could become pregnant and carry a child in the same womb from which she herself was born."

I would, of course, do it (again)as needed...but I wanted to point out that the uterus DOES carry your child (if it's a daughter) and your grandchild already because the girl fetus has her eggs for her children(ie your grandchildren) so cool!

I would do it without hesitation. Having children is such a blessing and I hope my daughter gets to experience that.

well, if I still had mine.....then sure. I had a hysterectomy a year ago, and my daughter is only six. Such a loving a sweet thing to do!

I'm done with having kids, I don't need my uterus anymore. If my daughter needed/wanted it, I'd donate it to her in a heart beat. As others have said, it would be weird (but in a cool way) that my uterus held both my child AND grandchild. I am all for organ donation. If I don't need it anymore, someone else can have it!
