|Meet The 5-year-old Who Became The Youngest Mother In History by Jeniemax: 10:13am On Jul 01, 2020|
Precocious puberty made it possible for 5-year-old Lina Medina of Peru to get pregnant and produce a bouncing baby boy. This scenario has remained a mystery, especially in medical history.
It was in April 1939, when Lina Medina’s mother took her to the hospital in Pisco, Peru, to see the renowned Dr. Gerardo Lozada for help. The poor woman noticed her daughter’s protruding belly, and as someone who lived in a remote village on the Andes, she looked worried.
She believed that evil spirits had taken possession of her young daughter’s body as the daughter’s stomach appeared to have some unusual growth. At once, Dr. Lozada assumed it must be a large abdominal tumor.
However, to ascertain his suspicions, the doctor then carried out a more careful evaluation of the five-year-old. To his amazement, he could hear a heartbeat. The child was carrying a child. Unbelievable!
For further perusal and findings, Dr. Lozada took the little girl to Peru’s capital, Lima, to see other expert doctors. The test reports came back positive. The young child was seven months gone into the pregnancy!!!
Then, on May 14, 1939, at the age of five years, seven months, and three weeks old, Lina Medina became the youngest mother in world history to delivered a baby. A healthy boy who weighed 2.7 kilograms. It was a new miracle in the history of medicine.
The baby was born through a cesarean section because her pelvis was immature to support the natural birth of the child. Everything went well as the mother, and the baby was in perfect condition.
The baby boy was named Gerardo, after Dr. Gerardo Lozada. The physician who handled her unusual case.
Soon, Lina became a national sensation, and subsequent medical examinations revealed that she had a rare condition known as precocious puberty.
