This 5-year-old girl becomes the youngest mother in the world: a sad record

This is the only recorded case in the world. A very young girl gave birth to her first child when she was just 5 years, 7 months and 17 days old…

These facts reported by various magazines such as Au Feminine, Doctissimo or Le Point took place in the 1930s. A child would have become pregnant only 5 years old. Of course, it was an “unconsented” act… We tell you his story which made the headlines…

The story of this 5-year-old child

Lina Medina was five years old when her abdomen was abnormally swollen. Her parents then took her to the hospital where the doctors, who thought it was a tumor, discovered that she was 7 months pregnant.

Gerardo Lozada, the doctor who took care of the girl’s case, discovered her very young age thanks to her birth certificate: she was 5 years old.

However, everything changed when her mother mentioned during the consultation that Lina had her period when she was three years old (so-called precocious puberty, which is infrequent, but possible).

A month after making this surprising discovery, Lina gave birth by caesarean section to a baby boy, because his pelvis was too small, on May 14, 1939. Back in her village, the girl’s parents had to hide her and protect her from the media.

This child’s son

His son who was called Gerardo, in tribute to the doctor who took care of Lina, was born weighing 2.7 kilos. He grew up with his mother who preferred to play with dolls rather than take care of him. For the little boy, Lina was his half-sister and not his mother.

Today, Gerardo died at the age of 40 in 1979. Unfortunately, there are other girls like this Indian girl, known by the initial H. and Yelizaveta Gryshchenko, a young Ukrainian who has gave birth at the age of 6. Watch for the details of her story in the video above.
