L ina Medina, a Peruvian girl, is the youngest confirmed mother in medical history. She gave birth at the age of 5 years, 7 months and 21 days. Medina was brought to a hospital by her parents at the age of five years due to increasing abdominal size. She was originally thought to have had a tumor, but her doctors determined she was in her seventh month of pregnancy. Dr. Gerardo Lozada took her to Lima, Peru, prior to the surgery to have other specialists confirm that Medina was pregnant.
