Grand Utero

A 56-year-old mother will donate her uterus to her 25-year-old daughter who was born without one. The only previous uterine transplant ever attempted, in 2000, failed. The daughter’s eggs would be fertilised through IVF and the embryo implanted into the same uterus that once carried her.
