Women are known to be patient and tolerant to pain better than men, and we will see some stories that may approve this idea:
1. Youngest Mother
Lina Marcela Medina de Jurado, born on 23 September 1933, is a Peruvian woman who became the youngest confirmed mother in medical history, giving birth at the age of five years, seven months, and 21 days. She lives in Lima, the capital of Peru .
When she was brought to a hospital by her parents at the age of five years due to increasing abdominal size, Doctors originally thought she have a tumor, but later determined she was in her seventh month of pregnancy. Dr Gerardo Lozada took Medina to Lima to have other specialists confirm that she was pregnant, this was in 1938.
Medina gave birth to a boy by Caesarean section, because of her small pelvis. According to a report, Medina’s father was initially jailed on suspicion of incest, but was released because there wasn’t any evidence to convict him, and it was never determined who the father of Medina’s child was.
Medina has never revealed the father of the child nor the circumstances of her impregnation, and the biological father was never identified.Her son grew up healthy. He died in 1979 at the age of 40.
Medina always refuse to talk to reporters, spent her life working as a secretary in the Lima clinic of Lozad and had another son from a marriage later.
The oldest woman to give birth was an Indian woman named Omkari Panwar, who gave birth to twins at age 72, in June 2008. She conceived the twins by in vitro fertilization, and gave birth via C-section, according to ABC News. Panwar already had two children and five grandchildren with her 75-year-old husband.
3. Smallest mother
Stacey Herald, a71 centimeters tall woman, has given birth to her first child on 21 October 2006, and later birthed two more children, despite doctors’ warnings that the pregnancies could be life-threatening.
Herald, a native of Dry Ridge, Kentucky, suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, or brittle bone disease,a genetic disorder that results in weak bones that break easily. Doctors advised Herald against having children, because her pelvis is so small that a growing fetus could have crushed her internal organs, ABC News reported previously. Her oldest and youngest children also have the bone disorder, but her middle child is average height.
4. The octomother:
Natalie Denise Doud-Suleman, born in July 11, 1975), known as Octomom in the media, is an American woman who came to international attention when she gave birth to 8 babies in January 2009.
Suleman, who already had six children before giving birth to the octuplets, conceived all of her children (including the first six) through in vitro fertilization, sparking a debate about the technology. The Medical Board of California later revoked the license of the doctor who performed the procedure.
