Baby born after first womb transplant from dead donor

A mother has given birth to a healthy baby girl after surgeons implanted a womb in her body taken from a dead person.

The birth, in Brazil, is the first reported involving a deceased donor womb transplant.

Ten previous attempts, in the US, Czech Republic and Turkey, to achieve a live birth using a womb taken from a dead individual, had all ended in failure.

The first birth after a womb transplant from a living donor took place in Sweden in September 2013.

Since then there have been 39 such procedures resulting in 11 live births.

The recipient in the ground-breaking latest case involving a dead donor was a 32-year-old woman born without a womb due to a rare genetic disorder.

In September 2016 she was given an unexpected chance of motherhood after undergoing the womb transplant at the Hospital das Clinicas in Sao Paulo.

The uterus was taken from a 45-year-old donor who had died from

Mother reveals her six-week-old son died just four days after being struck down by MENINGITIS

A heartbroken mother has revealed her six-week-old son died just four days after being struck down by meningitis. 

Georgia Higginbottom cradled her baby, Oscar Nally, for eight hours until he died, after his life support machine was switched off. 

Miss Higginbottom’s only child had no visible symptoms of meningitis, such as the tell-tale rash. She took him to hospital after hearing a ‘shrill cry’.

Pictures from a scan showed ‘every single part of his brain was black’, and he was diagnosed with Group B streptococcal meningitis, the main cause of meningitis in babies.

Ahead of Oscar’s funeral today, Miss Higginbottom, from Blackpool, is warning other parents to be vigilant and spot the signs of meningitis.

Parents share heartbreaking footage of CPR on their baby after she was almost killed by cold

 If your baby is not responding to you and you think they are unresponsive try to see if they react when you gently tap or flick the sole of their foot. 

If they do not wake up or respond to you they are likely to be unresponsive.

Check to see if they are still breathing normally. If they are unresponsive and not breathing normally open their airway and check their breathing again by looking for chest movement, listening for the sounds of normal breathing and seeing if you can feel their breath on your cheek.

If they are not breathing normally, you need to start CPR straight away.  

If someone is with you, get them to call 999 or 112 for emergency help.

If you’re on your own, you need to give one minute’s worth of CPR before you can call for help.

Father with cystic fibrosis finally gets lung transplant after three failed attempts

A father who has suffered a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis has finally had a life-saving lung transplant after three false hopes.

James Beeching, of Hastings, East Sussex, had documented his agonising wait on Facebook with candid videos.

He even made poignant recordings for his twins, with wife and primary school teacher, Becky, to remember him by, in fear of his incurable genetic condition.

Now, the 36-year-old can finally walk his children, Isobel and Logan, four, to school. 

‘Now I have moments of pure euphoria and find myself crying with joy at how easy life can be,’ Mr Beeching revealed.

‘I can play hide and seek with my kids, walk them to school, bring my wife breakfast in bed – all things that once seemed impossible.’

James Beeching, 34, had made a Facebook video directed to his young twins, fearing he<p data-recalc-dims=Read more at: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6362371/Father-cystic-fibrosis-finally-gets-lung-transplant-three-failed-attempts.html

Husband demands answers after his wife, 34, died of asthma attack outside locked ER doors

Laura Levis died at 34 of a treatable asthma at the doors of a Massachusetts emergency room, according to a heart-wrenching story penned by her husband, Peter Demarco, in Globe Magazine.  

DeMarco previously published an open letter to the staff of CHA Somerville Hospital, thanking them for treating his wife and her family with dignity.

But that was before he knew the whole story. 

Before he knew that Laura had called 911. 

Before he knew she had walked to the hospital. 

Before he knew Laura had made it within feet of the door to the ER. 

Now, his gratitude has turned to horror and rage at the series of simple but catastrophic failures that led to his wife’s death just outside the hospital.

After Lack of Coverage, New Series Fights to Get Exposure for Case of Missing Black Woman Phoenix Coldon

It was a week before Christmas in 2011 when Phoenix Coldon vanished without a trace. The 23-year-old, who family members said was an excellent musician and a regular at church, was gone, but her SUV was found stopped in the middle of a road with the engine running and her keys still inside.

It’s been nearly seven years and the case is still unsolved, making Coldon one of the nearly 75,000 missing Black women in America. St. Louis reporter Shawndrea Thomas is hoping to change that, however, with a new “Crime Time” series airing on the Oxygen network this week.
