World's Youngest Mother.

The world's youngest mother gave birth at the age of five - yes, FIVE!

Regardless of our squeamishness, we have to note that the claim of a five-year-old girl giving birth is apparently true. Her name was Lina Medina, a Peruvian girl from the Andean village of Ticrapo who made medical history when she gave birth to a boy by caesarean section in May 1939 at the age of five years, seven months and 21 days. Lina's parents initially thought their daughter had a large abdominal tumor, but after they took her to a hospital in the town of Pisco physicians confirmed that her abdominal swelling was due to pregnancy. Lina was eventually transferred to a hospital in Lima, where she delivered a six-pound baby boy by Cesarean section on 14 May 1939 (coincidentally the date on which Mother's Day was celebrated that year). Lina's father was temporarily jailed on suspicion of incest, but he was released for a lack of evidence and authorities were never able to determine who fathered Lina's child.

Gerardo died at the age of 40 in 1979 from bone marrow disease. There is no evidence of the disease having anything to do with the fact that his mother had been so young when she had him.

Of course this is true. Quit trying to show off by saying that it isn't. You must also all not believe one woman gave birth to about 78 children too either, eh? [not sure of the name, in records book]

she didn't gave birth "naturally" (vaginal birth), she got the baby through cesarea, and she had precocious puberty, menstruating before she got 1 year, and she got fully developed reproductive function so there was possible for her to get pregnant, now how she got pregnant is the mistery, most likely a rape, child at the age of 5 are not concious bout what they doing. sad but true.
