It’s no secret that moms can be pretty badass. They’re tough, they’re nurturing, and they know how to get things done. But what about the youngest moms in the world?
Lina Medina, a girl from Peru, became the youngest person to give birth when she had a baby named Gerardo at just the age of five.
In the early spring of 1939, Lina Medina happened to be the youngest mother on this planet who gave birth to a baby at a very young age of 5 years and 7 months.
This is something that might seem weird or unbelievable but it’s true—a girl named Lina Marcela Medina was only five years old when she had her baby boy Gerardo.
She was the youngest person to give birth, but this was only because she was in a place where the girls were not educated about sex and had no access to birth control. In a world where girls are educated about sex and have access to birth control, the youngest person to give birth would be 18 years old.
