WGN’s Robin Baumgarten was a bit caught off guard by a story on lab-grown vaginas – and she doesn’t do a very good job at hiding it. Check out the video below.


In a medical first, four women who were born with abnormal or missing vaginas were implanted with lab-grown versions made from their own cells.

The women received the implants as teens.

Follow-up tests show the new vaginas are indistinguishable from the women’s own tissue, and have grown in size as the women have matured.

The women all report having normal sex lives.
