MIAMI (March 13, 2013)—Doctors in Miami say they believe a five-organ transplant patient is the first ever to deliver a baby.
Fatema Al Ansari was 19 and living in Qatar when she was diagnosed with a blood clot in a major vein to the intestine.
In 2007, she underwent surgery at Jackson Memorial hospital in Miami during which she was given a new liver, pancreas, stomach and small and large intestine.
Five years later, she gave birth to a girl.
Al Ansari faced some complications during pregnancy, but her doctors say she is capable of having more children.
Al Ansari says it's "the best feeling in the world" to be a mother.
Her doctors said there are no reported cases of a five-organ transplant patient in the world giving birth.
