 Woman With Five Organ Transplants Gives Birth to a Girl Baby

A 26-year-old woman with five organ transplants has given birth to a healthy girl baby at an hospital in Miami.

Fatema Al Ansari, the mother of the newborn was apparently overjoyed as she addressed a press gathering along with her doctors.


Fatema Al Ansari, at the age of 19, was diagnosed with a blood clot in a major vein to the intestine and was operated at the same hospital in 2007. She received new transplants of liver, pancreas, stomach and small and large intestine.

Dr. Shalih Y. Yasin, the obstetrician, reported that this is the first case in the world where a woman with five organ transplants has given birth to a child.

Al Ansari previously had to terminate a pregnancy following her diagnosis. Later after the transplantation, she and her husband realized their dreams of parenthood with the help of in vitro fertilization.

According to the doctors, immense precautions and close monitoring were required as there was always a risk of organ rejection and the risk of medications affecting the child.
