Sweden hails first 'mother-daughter' uterus transplants

Two Swedish women could be able to give birth using the wombs in which they were carried, doctors say, hailing the world's first mother-to-daughter uterus transplants.

The weekend procedures were completed by more than 10 surgeons at Sweden's University of Gothenburg.

Doctors caution they will not consider the operations successful unless the women become pregnant.
