10-year-old Thai girl gives birth in Nakhon Panom province

A 10-year-old girl from Nakhon Panom province in Thailand has given birth, making her one of the youngest girls to have a baby in the southeast Asian country.



According to a report from the National News Bureau of Thailand Thursday, teachers at a school in the province disclosed that a 10-year-old became pregnant and delivered a baby at Ban Pang Hospital.

There is no report on whether police are looking for the father.

Thailand’s Reproduction Health Development Committee yesterday said it was considering allowing people to use morning-after pills in a bid to prevent unprepared pregnancy.

This is by no means the only report of a child this age having a baby in recent years.

Earlier this year, a 9-year-old Mexican girl, under the reported name of Dafne, gave birth to a baby girl on Jan. 27, 2013 in Jalisco, Mexico.

In November 2011,  an 11-year-old girl gave birth to a baby boy Sunday at a hospital in Iloilo province, Philippines.

According to numerous reports, the youngest confirmed mother in medical history was Peruvian girl, Lina Medina. Born September 27, 1933, Lina gave birth to a baby boy at the age of five years, seven months and 17 days on May 14, 1939.
