Can a 10 year old girl give birth to a child? Impossible you say! Apparently it is possible. In the city of Jerez de la Frontera, Spain a 10 year old girl has just given birth to a healthy baby. The social affairs minister of Andalusia, Micaela Navarro, said that the young mother is in good health even if she has just given birth. The baby is in good health as well.
For the protection of the girl/mother, her identity and that of the baby’s will be kept a secret as she is a minor. The father of the baby is allegedly a minor as well so authorities are not sure if they can file a case against him according to the Spanish Justice Ministry. In Spain, the law dictates that if a person below 13 years old commits consensual sex it is still classified as child abuse.
News reports say that the baby is of Romanian descent and was already pregnant when she arrived in Spain. To make matters worse, the authorities are deliberating if they should allow the young mother and her family to have custody of the newborn.
Apparently even if this is an unusual event, giving birth at such an early age is not impossible at all as proven by this case. Doctors agree that because a teenager girl is still developing physically there is a very big chance that the baby they are carrying in their womb will be born prematurely. The doctors say that she is still growing so she may not be able to carry the baby well.
