The transplant took place over the weekend between two women both between 30 and 40 years old.
One of the patients was born without a uterus, the other had her uterus removed some time ago after being diagnosed with cervical cancer.
A spokesperson for the university said that “both women and their donors are doing well but are tired”.
The women who received the uterus transplants will be able to experience pregnancies and give birth in the near future.
