First Womb Transfer, Mom Successfully Donates Womb To Her Daughter

This is the first womb transfer that was carried out in a hospital in India by team of doctors.


In India, a 43-year-old mother has successfully donated her womb to her daughter, 21-year-old. The daughter was born without a uterus, with the hopes that her daughter can experience childbirth. The surgery became the first of its kind in India and also performed by a team of doctors at Pune’s Galaxy Care Hospital within the city of Pune in South-West India.

According to the report, the womb transfer was done yesterday and it was led by the hospital’s medical director, Dr. Shailesh Puntambekar. The womb transfer lasted for nine and a half of hours in overall and both mother and daughter are doing just fine and in recuperation. The daughter will have to wait for twelve months to give her body enough time to heal and modify to the new uterus before she considers trying to get pregnant thru in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Currently, she is under observation and will also be kept in Intensive Care Unit for some days.

“The daughter was born without a uterus and she desired to have her very own child and was not interested in adoption or surrogacy. For the fact that they knew about the uterus transplant, they approached us and we acceped the surgical operation choice,” Dr Shailesh Puntambekar stated.

“Fortuitously, her mom was found to be a medically appropriate uterus donor for her.”

He added: “The process is tough because multiple large arteries are to be joined there, and veins which that are small and short. It’s technically very hard.”


In line with Dr. Mats Brännström, a professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at Sweden’s University Of Gothenburg, just six children have ever been delivered from a uterus transplant – two of those babies are of same mother. It remains to be seen whether India’s first transplant will result in birth although Dr. Puntambekar stated that he felt “relaxed and assured” that it’s going to take place for his patient.


It’s really a great news that the first womb transfer was carried out successfully.
