Woman 'to receive mother's womb'

A young biology teacher is preparing to have her mother's womb transplanted into her - in the hope she can have a baby, carrying it in the same womb that carried her, it has been reported.

Sara Ottoson, 25, was born without a uterus because of the condition Mayer Rokitanksy Kuster Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Her mother, Eva Ottoson, 56, a British-based businesswoman, has agreed to take part in the groundbreaking procedure - becoming the first woman in the world to transplant her womb into her daughter.
