Sarah Ottoson was born without a uterus due to a rare genetic disorder. However, if Swedish surgeons are successful, she could eventually carry a child to term, in the very uterus from whence she came. Sarah's mother Eva will donate her uterus—which clearly works—to her daughter via voluntary hysterectomy.

The surgery, which is scheduled in the spring of 2012, is not the first attempt to transplant a uterus. Another attempt in 2000 by Saudi doctors was initially successful, but the transplanted uterus was removed four months later due to complications. The surgery is apparently ridiculously complicated and involves connecting tiny blood vessels from the ovaries to the transplanted uterus. Even if the surgery is successful, doctors are unsure whether the transplanted uterus would be able to stretch and deliver enough blood to sustain life.
