The reality star, who underwent sex reassignment surgery in February, revealed she is hoping to have the groundbreaking surgery as she becomes more and more desperate to have a child.
HOW DOES A WOMB TRANSPLANT WORK?
Womb transplants are still considered to be a groundbreaking procedure, predominantly performed with the use of a womb donated from a living woman.
However in 2019 history was made when a baby was born who had been carried to term in a womb transplanted from a dead donor.
The womb and blood vessels were removed from a 45-year-old woman – herself a mother – who had died of a stroke.
They were then implanted into a new mother, who was born without a womb of her own, in an almost 11-hour operation, and the blood vessels connected to her own.
The women then began to menstruate 37 days after the operation and then had regular periods until she became pregnant seven months later.
An embryo was implanted using eggs which had been taken from her ovaries before the womb transplant procedure and fertilised using IVF.
The baby grew healthily and was born after 35 weeks and three days by caesarean section.
During the caesarean section the woman’s implanted womb was also removed and both mother and baby recovered normally.
Speaking to Closer magazine, Jessica said: ‘Even it cost a million pounds to have one, I’d find a way to do it. I would love a baby that has my own genes and blood, and I have my frozen sperm so I could use that for IVF.
‘All I wanted was to be a woman and having gender reassignement surgery was the happiest day of my life. But having a womb would be even better – I would feel complete if I could give birth.
‘I would love to have a brood of children. I would make me so happy to be called ”mummy”.’
Jessica said she hopes to become the first transgender woman to have a womb transplant, and is currently speaking to doctors about having the procedure.
Womb transplants, which cost £50,000 per operation, were developed to allow women to carry a baby if they were born without a womb or have had it removed through illness. Roughly 15,000 women in the UK could benefit.
It has been considered that the procedure could be trialled on those who were born biologically male using the organs of dead donors or women who have since transitioned to become men and had their wombs removed.
Several transgender men – those who were born women and then switched – have already given birth in the UK.
But in those circumstances it was merely a case of retaining the female reproductive organs after they transitioned, rather than having to implant female organs into a male body.
Six months after the surgery and the womb has healed, a donated egg would be fertilised with the transgender woman’s own sperm and the embryo implanted. The baby would then be delivered by caesarean section.
It comes after Jessica told MailOnline that she’s ‘desperate’ to lose her virginity and become a mother by whatever means necessary following her sex change surgery.
