The Youngest Mother To Give Birth

Oddities

The youngest person ever to give birth is Lina Medina, a Peruvian girl from the Andean village of Ticrapo. She gave birth to a boy by caesarean section on May 14, 1939 at the age of five years, seven months and 21 days.

The girls father was initially suspected of being the father but authorities were never able to determine who fathered Lina's child.

Medical examination at the time of birth revealed that Lina had the ovaries of a fully mature woman. Her medical history also claimed that she had been having menstrual cycles for years before the birth. She had also developed breasts. Doctors theorized that her abnormal sexual maturity was a result of an extraordinary hormonal disorder of pituitary origin.
