In brief: No and yes.
If you mean "to carry your baby inside of you without uterus" is near to impossible.
Even extrauterine pregnancies ( pregnancies outside the uterus )require transfer of sperm cells through the cervix to the falopian tubes to encounter the ovum ( egg). As fertility specialists said only surrogates may carry your fertilized ovum if they do it artificially.

In brief: Yes, but..
Actually, you may be able to have a baby if you have ovaries.
Consider that the essence of a baby is the genetics from your eggs and the uterus is an "incubator". Using ivf technology and your partner's sperm (or a sperm donor), then you could create embryos that are transferred to a "gestational surrogate" who provides the host uterus. The baby is yours (there are legal issues too).

In brief: No
A hysterectomy removes your uterus.
That is where the baby would have to live in yor belly.
