Sad Story Of Lina Medina The Youngest Mother in History Who Gave Birth at 5 years old!
Lina Medina is the child who is recorded as the youngest mother in history.
Born in Peru, Lina Medina became the youngest mother in history at only 5 years old. When she gave birth to her son, Gerardo, in 1939. Below is her story.
Lina Medina, The Youngest Mother in History
In 1939 Lina Medina gave birth to a son at the age of 5 years old. Making Lina Medina the youngest confirmed mother in recorded medical history.
The Peruvian child delivered a 5-pound, 8-ounce boy via caesarean section. The small size of her pelvis made it impossible for the baby to pass through the birth canal naturally.
Dr. Edmundo Escomel described the girl’s early sexual maturity in a detailed report of the unusually bizarre case.
- Lina Medina had a condition called precocious puberty
- Lina had her first menstrual cycle when she was only eight months old.
- At 4 years old her breasts were completely developed.
At the time Lina Medina’s pregnancy was incorrectly thought to be a hoax!
Lina’s condition, known as precocious puberty, was an extreme case, so much so that the story was dismissed as a hoax by many. But doctors X-rayed the fetus’ skeleton in utero and provided a picture of Lina, taken late in her pregnancy.
The photograph below which I’ve censored, shot in profile, proves not only that Lina Medina was indeed pregnant but shows the extent of her sexual development.
The uncensored photo can be found online but I won’t post it here uncensored. She’s only 5 years old.
The baby boy named Gerardo, was born healthy. He grew up normally but died at the age of 40 from a bone-marrow disease. The true true identity of his mother was revealed to him at 10 years old. Which means Lina Medina would have been 15 at the time she was revealed as his mother. I would assume that was one strange conversation.
The father of Lina Medina’s Baby?
The father of Lina Medina’s baby remains a mystery to this day. Lina’s own father was arrested on suspicion of rape and incest once the pregnancy of his 5 year old daughter was confirmed but the charges were later dropped due to lack of evidence.
