Aparently a Lina Medina is the youngest recorded mother. She gave birth at age 5, in Peru, 1939.

duckflash - can`t help thinking that if this had happened around 200 B.C., they might have gone the `immaculate conception` route.. certainly would have been more convincing.

Nobody knows how it was possible, apparently. I checked it the first time I saw someone mention it, years ago. I tend to check things to see if they`re urban myths or not. That case appeared in medical journals and so is well documented, but doctors have no definite explanation as to how. It wasn`t pathological, like progeria, but it was way outside the norm.

Isn`t there some sort of disorder that causes premature puberty? I know I`ve heard freak/far-fetched stories of girls as young as 3 getting their periods.

Goddamn. People need to realize that morality (if this is what you can call it in this case) is subjective. If that is Roma culture, of COURSE it`s not going to be a shock to the mother that he young daughter has a baby. It`s surprising to people in the US/Canada/Europe (which is pretty much the average user on IAB) because it`s not something we normally see. To the Roma, it`s an every day occurrence. Deal with it.

I am not bothered by this as most of you seem to be. Who are we to judge others and their traditions? Just look at us? My old MIDDLESCHOOL had a day care, and we more school shootings. I can only imagine what they say about us...

They didn`t mention it but the baby was born pregnant, the Doctor mistook the kids vajayjay for a Matroyshka doll.

"its our custome to marry young"

hahahaha

Is it also the custome to raise a slut who has a bastard child out of wedlock? Her first of many, I am sure?

I am so glad to see this is NOT in the U.S. It warms my heart to know our trailer parks have influenced the world this way!

The mother (30-year-old mother) says it`s a custom for them to get married young, so I can`t really argue the 10-year-old having a baby (although it does seem weird and unhealthy to me), but if the father`s not even in the picture to help raise the child, that`s when someone should step in. The 10-year-old is still a child herself and can`t possibly raise the child on her own. I just hope the (grand)mother is willing to give 24-hour support for a few years.

The girl is Romanian, she gave birth in Spain.

She is young but the youngest mother is still a Peruvian

She was 5 years old when she gave birth...
