Doctors have carried out the world's first successful womb transplant bringing hope of motherhood to thousands of women.
The Daily UK Mail reports a Turkish woman born without a womb has received a healthy organ in a seven-hour operation and is due to start IVF treatment in September.
Similar surgeries in Sweden and Britain are also planned this year, bringing hope that many more women may soon have the chance of carrying their own child.
But some experts are warning of the risks that range from rejection of the new womb, to potentially fatal complications of pregnancy.
