Jennifer and Drew Gobrecht never thought they would be able to have kids. But then Jen signed up for a new trial at Penn Medicine where she would get a uterus transplant from a deceased donor.
The gamble paid off as her baby is now the second-ever born in the US from this type of operation.
At a press conference in January, Penn Medicine announced doctors had successfully done the transplant and the Gobrecht's welcomed a baby boy, named Benjamin Thomas. He's 8-weeks-old and was born just in time for the holidays.
