A Peruvian girl named Lina Medina gives birth to a son at the age of 5 in 1939; she becomes the youngest confirmed mother in recorded history. Despite the fact that her pelvis was so small that the baby could not pass through the birth canal, the Peruvian child was able to deliver a 5-pound, 8-ounce boy by caesarean section. It has been said that in a detailed report of the case, Dr. Edmundo Escomel emphasized the girl's early sexual maturity. It was only eight months old when Lina experienced her first menstrual cycle; she had almost fully developed breasts by the age of four years old.

The parents of a 5-year-old daughter in a remote Peruvian village noticed that her belly was enlarged in the early spring of 1939. In the belief that the swelling in their daughter was a tumor, Tiburelo Medina and Victoria Losea took her from their home in Ticrapo to Lima to be examined by a physician. As it turns out, Lina's condition, known as precocious puberty, was a particularly extreme case, so much so that many people dismissed it as a hoax. However, doctors were able to X-ray the fetus' skeleton while it was still in utero, and provided a picture of Lina, taken late in her pregnancy. Besides being proof of Lina's pregnancy, this photograph also demonstrates her sexual development.

At the age of 5 years, 7 months, and 21 days, Lina Medina became the youngest mother in the world when the doctor discovered that she was seven months pregnant. She became the youngest mother in the world at the age of 5 years, 7 months, and 21 days. The baby had no medical problems. He was a healthy boy named Gerardo. He grew up normally (his mother's true identity was revealed to him when he was 10) but he died of a bone-marrow disease when he was 40 years old.

Despite the fact that her case caught pediatricians by surprise, Medina's case drew international attention that she and her family had never imagined. In spite of the fact that Medina has not told authorities who her father is, she and her family remain uninterested in publicity and do not wish to be interviewed for her story. The young Lina Medina, a child of nine children born in one of Peru's poorest villages on September 23, 1933, was the youngest of nine children. Although the news of her pregnancy at such a young age was shocking to her loved ones — and to the public — pediatric endocrinologists believed it was not totally outlandish for a 5-year-old child to become pregnant at such an early age.

Medina is believed to have suffered from a rare genetic condition called precocious puberty, in which a child's body begins to change into the body of an adult too early (before the age of eight for girls and before the age of nine for boys). This condition usually causes boys to develop a deeper voice, enlarged genitals, and facial hair. Girls with this condition are more likely to have their first period and develop breasts at an early age. The condition affects approximately one in 10,000 children. Approximately 10 times more girls than boys develop this condition as a result of this condition.

But of course, even though her body was developing early, she was very much like a young child.

In Lina's case, the question of paternity remains a mystery. The father of Medina, Tiburelo, who was a silversmith in the area, was arrested briefly for allegedly raping his child. However, he was released after being released and no evidence or witness statements could be obtained to hold him responsible for the rape. For his part, Tiburelo strenuously denied that he had ever raped his daughter. Several news organizations speculated in the years following Medina's birth that she may have been attacked during unspecified festivities held near her village during the years following the birth. However, this was never proven to be true.

Youngest Mother In The World

Despite the fact that over 80 years have passed since Medina was born and the story has been passed down from her family to other generations, unfortunately, this doesn't seem likely. It's unlikely that Medina or her family will try to capitalize on the story, and medical records from the period contribute a good deal of information about her pregnancy.

During Medina's pregnancy, only two photographs have been known to have been taken that depict her, and only one of those - a low-resolution profile picture - has ever been published outside of medical literature.
