Brazilian doctors say they’ve delivered the world’s first baby using a transplanted uterus from a deceased donor.

Ten previous attempts in the Czech Republic, Turkey and the U.S. have failed. The team in Brazil was led by Dr. Dani Ejzenberg, of Hospital das Clinicas at the University of Sao Paolo School of Medicine.
