Derya Sert, Womb Transplant Recipient, May Be Pregnant

World's First Womb Transplant Recipient May Be Pregnant

We're cautiously excited for Derya Sert, a Turkish woman who received a womb transplant from a dead donor back in August, 2011. Now, as The Huffington Post reports, doctors at a hospital in her native Turkey have successfully implanted an embryo into Sert's womb.

Sert, 22, was born without a womb, and the transplant was the first of its kind.

The development doesn't yet guarantee Sert a successful pregnancy, but we'll be following her story and wishing her luck!

I am the proud mother of a beautiful 17 year old daughter born through an anonymous sperm donor. We don't know as much about him as I would like, but I do know one thing. I am forever grateful to this man for giving us our exceptional daughter. It's great that there are options out there for men and women who are experiencing fertility issues. I will pray that the womb transplant that resulted in this pregnancy has a very happy ending with a healthy baby.
