Sara Ottosson, 25, may be receiving one of the most bizarre gifts a mother has ever bestowed on her daughter...

Her uterus.

According to Fox, Ottosson was born without reproductive organs, and her 56-year-old mother Eva is willing to donate her own to aid Sara in bearing children.

“I’m a biology teacher and it’s just an organ like any other organ,” Sara Ottosson said to the Daily Telegraph. “I’m more worried that my mum is going to have a big operation. It would mean the world to me for this to work and to have children.”

The Ottossons are still waiting on test results for Eva's eligibility. The operation is reportedly more risky than a heart transplant.

    That's weird, yet I'm happy for the non fertile daughter
    That she can have kids

    It's the thought that counts, but I still find it disturbing.
  • disclaimer 2011/06/29 06:54:57
    Sorry, the thought of carrying my children in the same organ that carried me....that's just weird. If it were me, I'd just find another donor, but I wish them luck.

    I thinks its actually kinda nice in a weird dysfunctional way. But still nice cause she wants to have kids.
  • Azcat 2011/06/19 15:29:05
    Freaky, but, probably fits in today's $%#@$% moral compass generation. Have our bodies become the pic-a-part mart?
  • gail 2011/06/18 22:12:44
    Wrong on so many levels.

    What's wrong with adoption. There are thousands of children out there waiting for a good home.
  • indiejen 2011/06/16 05:12:52
    Isn't being born without reproductive ability god's way of saying "You should not have children"? They're tampering with nature.
  • Hey_Jude1961 2011/06/16 00:01:50
    I hope it works. This is no more freaky than carrying a baby for someone else.

    It's nice though.

    I think its sweet and freaky at the same time. If i was born without reproductive organs I would still want a family without adoption.
  • Stuart 2011/06/15 16:51:55
    I think that would be awesome. There are many children out there today that have "two" moms because the daughter had her mother carry her egg inside her and give birth. If the mom can donate the uterus to the daughter, she can carry her own baby. I think that is about as good as a kidney or heart transplant.

    You have to read the entire story before you vote, this mother is giving up an organ to help her daughter. No one would think twice if it was a kidney, bone marrow, part of her liver, but giving up her uterus so that her daughter can have children, you freak out; loving parents are willing to give up many things to help their children.
  • Azcat Patrici... 2011/06/19 15:31:04
    The uterus is not an organ needed to maintain life. Therefore it does not match the standards you reflected above. It is a stupid and shallow request. Adoption is the real option with so many needy children.
  • Wutnagkillabeeontheswarm 2011/06/15 15:28:23
    Its a little bit freaky, but the mom is risking her live for the sake of her daughter, which is a beatiful thing to do. That daughter better be thankful and bring some grandchildren afterwards:p
  • ashgameover 2011/06/15 12:02:51
    Why would they bother doing unnecessary surgery? Why wouldn't the mom just be a surrogate? She probably already went through the change so how is this even plausible? If the daughter wants a kid THAT bad, why doesn't she just adopt or even better be a foster parent to the enormous amount of troubled kids that need real love? I'm tired of people wasting their money on unnecessary surgery and the like when they could actually be doing some good in this world with it.
  • Patrici... ashgame... 2011/06/15 16:22:25
    Really!! Do you have any idea how many couples are trying to adopt a baby? It is very difficult to adopt, and not many 25 year old's are qualified to be foster parents to a troubled kid.
  • ashgame... Patrici... 2011/06/15 16:44:07 (edited)
    Well then perhaps she needs to rethink being a parent, period. If she can't have the patience to wait for the adoption process, or be patient with a troubled child, then she hardly has the patience to be a parent (speaking from personal experience).
  • TPietro 2011/06/15 11:38:55
    What a gift a Mother to give to her daughter !

    Anytime someone gets cut open I find it freaky, but the mother is a brave woman though.

    I wish we could just accept that not every female will produce a child and she is no less womanly because of it. The same for males. The daughter can adopt and the risk is not worth the outcome even if successful.

    Yes, it's both fascinating and freaky, but it is also not that much different from donating your kidney to a loved one.

    this mother truely is an angel willing to give the gift of life all over again for her daughter.
    Nothing is more special than the bond between Mother and Daughter.
