A baby born at a Texas hospital is the first in the US to be birthed from a mother who had received a uterus transplant.

This is according to the Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.

The hospital has not revealed many details surrounding the birth, including when the baby boy was born.

The patient and her family have also asked for privacy at this time, according to the hospital.

The transplant was carried out as part of a clinical trial to study new infertility treatment options for women who don't have a functioning uterus.

This could be because the women were born without the organ, lost the uterus or has one that no longer functions.
