What was originally believed to be a tumor that had caused a significant increase in abdominal size, was actually something that had never happened before. On May 14, 1939, Lina Medina (born on September 23, 1933) became the youngest mother in medical history. At the young age of just 5, the Peruvian woman (currently age 84) gave birth to a healthy boy.
Who Is The Youngest Mother In History?
At five years, seven months and 21 days, Medina owns the record for the youngest mother ever. While her case was believed to be a hoax, there have been doctors over the years who have verified the case. The supported evidence comes from biopsies and X rays of the fetal skeleton in utero. There were also published photographs of Medina taken by doctors.
