The first baby born from a transplanted uterus outside of a clinical trial entered the world this past May, and doctors are now sharing the details. The mother was born without a uterus due to a congenital condition called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome.

It happened at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

The transplant, pregnancy, and birth also represent “an incredible milestone” that will open doors for other parents struggling with infertility, the hospital’s Dr. Paige Porrett said in a news release. “This birth is evidence that reassures us that this emerging technology — this innovative therapy — that’s been needed for so long really, truly works,” Porrett said.

The birth signifies that this procedure is now an option when couples are dealing with infertility.
