Lina Marcela Medina de Jurado becomes the youngest confirmed mother recorded in medical history after delivering a son at the age of 5.
The five-year-old’s parents discovered she was pregnant after her abdomen began to grow and she started having stomach pains.
Lina Medina is a Peruvian woman born on 23 September 1933. She gave birth to his son when she was 5 years 7 months and 21 days.
On May 14, 1939, she gave birth to a baby boy via cesarean section as her young pelvis was too small for a natural birth.
When Lina Medina’s stomach began growing, doctors were certain she was suffering from a large tumor as she was only 5 years old at that time.
But after running medical tests they found she was seven months pregnant after being raped. And weeks later, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
