“Transplanting the uterus was a difficult task. It was a nine-hour surgery. It is not a very easy surgery, chances of infection were very high.

“The embryo was completely embedded in the lady so that she can conceive,” Dr Puntambekar on Friday.

“This is my mother’s uterus. I am happy that my baby will grow in the same uterus same as I,” said the woman.
