Doctors are granted acceptance to undertake the first 10 uterus transplants of the UK, after the success of the process in Sweden.
Ethical approval was allowed for the grafts – within a clinical trial – and can start in springtime.
Approximately one in 7,000 girls are born without a uterus, while others lose their uterus to cancer.
In case the trial is successful, the first UK infant born from a uterus transplant could arrive in 2018 or 2017.
Over 100 girls have been identified as possible recipients of donor uteri.
