kkleiner writes "Led by Dr. Mats Brännström, a team of surgeons at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden are giving Sara Ottosson, now 25-years old, hope that she may one day fulfill her dream of giving birth to a baby. The uterus will come from a very special donor: Eva Ottosson, Sara’s mother. Sara’s operation will mark only the second time transplantation of a uterus has been attempted in humans, and the first time between a mother and daughter."
