The absence of the uterus does not prevent the young woman from having children. It is done with 2 babies after the transplant

The absence of the uterus does not prevent the young woman from having children.

When she was just 14 years old, Jennifer Dingle was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome (MRKH), a disorder that meant she was born without a uterus and therefore, could never give birth to a child.

However, she has continued to make history, giving birth to two babies after an innovative uterine transplant treatment.

The mom who stays home from Dallas, Texas, learned about her condition when she was a teenager, visiting the doctor as menstruation did not come at the same time as her friends.

Jennifer, 33, said: “I did an examination and they could not see the cervix, so I was taken to a specialist. They confirmed that I did not have a cervix, but that I had ovaries. After further analysis, they discovered that I had no uterus and was diagnosed with MRKH.

"I was told that I would never be able to give birth to my child and if I wanted to have my biological children, she would be with a surrogate mother.

It was hard. Every little girl dreams of getting married and having children. '

Despite the devastating diagnosis, Jennifer stayed positive after meeting her husband Jason, 34, in 2011.

With Jason's busy military career - and the couple moving around the world where he was based - the couple 's plans for the children were suspended, but they never gave up hope.

Jennifer said: “Jason has always been extremely supportive of my condition, I told him from the beginning. "He told me not to worry and that we would become parents anyway."

Then, in 2016 while they were stationed in Italy, Jennifer received an exciting phone call from her mother that would end up changing the trajectory of their lives.

She had heard about uterine transplants during a gynecologist check-up, but was told it "would be very dangerous".

When Jennifer's mom called her saying she had heard rehearsals were taking place, she was determined to take the plunge.
