The woman received a deceased donor uterus transplant, had the baby and then had the uterus removed.  (I don't think the uterus removal is mentioned in this story, I read it elsewhere.)  She had the transplanted uterus removed to prevent transplant complications (and I assume one baby was what she wanted so she didn't need it.).

A woman who received a uterus transplanted from a deceased donor has given birth to a healthy child, researchers in Brazil said on Tuesday. It is the first such birth to be reported.
Uterine transplants from living donors have succeeded; at least 11 babies have been born this way since 2013. But a viable procedure to transplant uteri from deceased women could drastically increase the availability of the organs.
