United Kingdom – An 11 year old girl gave birth to a baby in the UK. As “The Sun” reports, it was at the age of ten – apparently unnoticed – became pregnant. According to the British newspaper, the birth of the child was “a big shock” for the whole family. However, the young mother and the baby are doing well.
“She is now surrounded by expert help. The main thing is that she and the baby are fine, ”said a source from the community.

The social welfare office and the city administration are currently investigating the incident, further information about the baby’s father is not yet known.
Eleven-year-old has a baby: the youngest mother in Great Britain
Because the young mother is only eleven years old, she is said to have set a new record in Great Britain: “This is the youngest mother I have ever heard of,” says Dr. Carol Cooper, a media medic, the “Sun”. Previously, another young mother, Tressa Middleton, had this title: she became a mother in 2006 at the age of twelve. In 2014, a baby was born to a 12-year-old mother and a 13-year-old father – the lowest age for any British parent.
The fact that girls become pregnant at the age of eleven and can give birth is explained by medical doctor Carol Cooper based on the weight of those affected. Because many children are overweight these days, puberty would start earlier in them than in children of normal weight. Even unnoticed pregnancies, such as that of the 11-year-old, are not uncommon, according to “The Sun”: “About one in 2500 births takes place in a woman who does not know that she is pregnant (or has hidden it).” (Ebb )
