1939: Lina Medina becomes the youngest confirmed mother in recorded medical history, delivering a son at the age of 5.

The Peruvian child delivered a 5-pound, 8-ounce boy via caesarean section; her small pelvis made it impossible for the baby to pass through the birth canal. In a detailed report of the case, Dr. Edmundo Escomel described the girl’s early sexual maturity. Lina had her first menstrual cycle when she was only eight months old; her breasts were almost completely developed by the time she was 4.

Lina’s condition, known as precocious puberty, was an extreme case, so much so that the story was dismissed as a hoax by many. But doctors X-rayed the fetus’ skeleton in utero and provided a picture of Lina, taken late in her pregnancy. The photograph, shot in profile, proves not only the pregnancy but shows the extent of her sexual development.

The baby, a boy named Gerardo, was healthy. He grew up normally (his mother’s true identity was revealed to him when he was 10) but died at 40 from a bone-marrow disease.

Paternity remains a mystery. Lina’s father was arrested on suspicion of rape and incest but the charges were later dropped for lack of evidence. Lina, who is still living, has never divulged a name and, indeed, may not know.

WHEN Lina Medina’s stomach began growing, doctors were certain she was suffering from a large tumour – she was only five years old, after all.

But after running tests they found she was seven months pregnant after being raped and weeks later she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

Lina Medina, who became pregnant at the age of five and later gave birth to a son

80 years on, Lina is still the youngest person in the world to have ever given birth.

She was born in a small village in the Andes in Peru to a poor family in 1933.

At the age of five, her mother noticed her growing abdomen after she complained about having stomach pains.

Just weeks later on May 14, 1939, she gave birth to a baby boy via Caesaerean as her young pelvis was deemed to small for a natural birth.

Her baby was born a healthy 6lbs and the infant was named Gerardo in honour of the doctor who delivered him.

When Gerardo was born , the doctor discovered that despite only being five years old, Lina had mature sexual organs and suffered from a a condition called precocious puberty.

After Lina gave birth, police arrested her father Tilburelo on suspicion of incest.

Although the family have never spoken to the press, Lina’s mother reportedly noticed that her daughter started having periods from the age of three.
