“Girl gives birth at the age of 12. Then the doctors discover something shocking. Different females’ bodies handle pregnancy differently. So yeah, it’s possible that a 12-year-old girl can give birth with or without minor or severe complications, given that she’s started menstruating. However, she should mother, but it’s not easy, and this is coming from one who had her first child at 14.
Being a mother’s heart and my birth was downright traumatizing. The doctors assumed I wouldn’t be able to give birth without intervention at 14. Rent much detail about my first labor, but luckily my second labor at 18 was far less pleasant.
At 12 years old, just isn’t ready for anything that motherhood has to bring and will inevitably lose their childhood over it, even if they’re physically able to have a child. The proud father of a 12-year-old girl who has become Britain’s youngest mother insisted yesterday that he would rather she had fallen pregnant than find she is on drugs. The school drool who became pregnant by her 13-year-old boyfriend when she was still in primary school at the age of 11.
Gave birth to a seven-pound four-ounce girl on Sunday at 12 years and three months. She is five months younger than the previous youngest UK mother. The Year 7 pupil and the baby’s father, who are said to be totally in love and who have been going out for a year, are believed to be Britain’s youngest parents.
Yesterday her father said that he would stand by his daughter but admitted that he broke down with emotion when discovering only four weeks ago that his eldest daughter was about to give birth. Last night her father, who found out she was pregnant only a month ago, said, ‘I would rather have her come home and had this than find out she was on drugs at 11 or 12.’ There’s plenty of routes kids this age can go down.
He’s brought something beautiful into this world. That little girl doesn’t bring shame to me at all. I’m so proud of her. Shame doesn’t even come into it. We didn’t know this was happening. Unfortunately, kids this age are going to grow up to have boyfriends and partners or whatever. If they do things behind their parents’ back, that’s something we’re never going to be able to find out.
The man from North London no longer lives with the girl’s mother, who has become a grandmother at 27. Describing himself as a proud parent and using a false name to protect the identity of the girl, he told LBC Radio that both sets of parents were supporting the youngsters. He described the 13-year-old boy whose identity has also been withheld as a great kid. The girl’s father told Nick Ferrari on LBC, ‘We only found out she was pregnant a month ago.’
That means she’s eight months pregnant. The baby is going to come into this world no matter what. You can just be supportive about it. Families on both sides are going to be very supportive about it. It’s heartbreaking, but you can’t turn back time; you can only go forwards. We don’t know where it happened. What you’re implying is that we knew they were having s*xual intercourse in bedrooms.
“No,” he said. He would not let his three-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son make the same mistake but denied that he could have prevented it. He added, “We cannot keep her wrapped up her whole life. I cannot keep her wrapped up all her life. She goes to school, they spend time together. You can’t stop this. I cannot go out and watch my little girl 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It’s not possible. It won’t be happening again. What’s happened has happened because.
You give your children a bit of slack, so now we’ll be keeping an eye on people. Maybe we could have done more. They made a mistake, and that’s the thing we’ve got to deal with now and just be proud of what we got.” The pair had the lowest combined age of any British parents on record. She had 12 years and three months, five months younger than Britain’s previous youngest mother, Teresa Middleton. Their child weighed seven pounds, close to the UK average for a girl of seven pounds four ounces. The sum reported at 27.
The girl’s mother, who was a teenage mother herself, is now one of Britain’s youngest grandmothers. The parents from North London have been in a relationship for a year and say they are totally in love. They met over Christmas 2012 in a park when she was 10, and he was 12. It was reported the girl’s father added, “I can’t keep a watch under 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You don’t know what’s going on, and once the mistake’s been made, you can only support them.” On Tuesday, the new mother, who has a three-year-old sister and nine-year-old brother, reportedly went to a register office to register the birth with her own mother and another woman.
The families on both sides are going to be very supportive about it. It’s heartbreaking, but you can’t turn back time, you can only go forwards. Her grandmother, aged 56, is now a great-grandmother and was shocked by the news. The girl’s father said that he cried when learning of the pregnancy four weeks before the birth, and she apologized to him.
The girl’s father insisted his grandchild will not be brought up on benefits. He told LBC, “I come from a working background, we’re not scrounging off the social like other people are suggesting. I work, I own my own business, I’m fully going to support them with my own money. We’re not scroungers. I’ll sit there and we’ll support this baby as best I can with my own money.”
He said his other children, a boy of nine and a girl of three, do not fully understand what’s happened, adding, “It’s shocking at first, but I don’t think they understand the fact that she’s a mom. It won’t be happening again. Now we’ll be keeping an eye on people. I don’t want this to happen again. Maybe we could have done more.” It’s thought that social services will now be giving the couple support, although a health visitor could suffice unless the child is being seen at risk.
A source told The Sun, “Both sets of grandparents are incredibly supportive. It’s a very difficult situation because the parents are both so young, but the families are right behind them. The baby’s mom and dad have been in a relationship for more than a year, so this isn’t a fleeting romance. They intend to stick together and bring their daughter up together. They’re very into each other, totally in love. She’s obsessed with them. She sees this as true love. They want to get married.”
The source told, “Our classmates at the mother’s school have been left shocked. The girl only left classes last month, and it was said she did not look pregnant.” On claims that the couple want to marry, the girl’s father said, “They’re not going to get married, but I couldn’t say that in six years. I’d like to think they’re going to turn out to be one happy family.” He added, “We’d spoken to them. Kids at this age, when they have boyfriends, they sometimes become besotted with people. What’s happened has happened. We can’t bury our kids forever. They get me to life.”
Britain’s youngest mother, Tressa Middleton, became pregnant at 11 and gave birth at 12 in Edinburgh in 2016. The youngest father on record is seen Steward of Bedford, who became a father at age 12 in 1998. Famously in 2009, Obi Patton from Eastbourne, East Sussex, told a newspaper that he believed he had made his 15-year-old girlfriend pregnant when he was just 12. Anna Tess then established that a 15-year-old boy was the father of Chantal Stedman’s baby, leaving Alpha distressed. But two years later, Chantel insisted that Alfie was indeed the father.
Hillary Pannick, chief executive of teenage pregnancy charity Straight Talking, told Mail Online, “I know girls who’ve been pregnant at 13, have had the baby, and have heard of 12-year-olds before. Girls are going into puberty earlier. Certainly, there are health implications of girls having babies quite so young. We know that the health statistics for teenage parents are not good, certainly rob young people of their childhood. The chances of them staying together are very low, and the benefits system doesn’t encourage it.”
She added, “It’s not the end of their life, but they will be dependent on others both financially and emotionally. I would tell them what my teenage parents working for us tell me. It’s not the end of their life, but they will be dependent on others both financially and emotionally. They tell me that they love their children, they don’t regret having their children, but they wish they had waited until they were in a financial position to support their child. We know that teenage parents are more likely to have children who are teenage children. They’re going to live on the state unless the parents are wealthy to support them.”
The risk of physical complications is quite high, although with modern medicine, many give birth safely. It’s still not advisable, continuing to carry a pregnancy to term should never be considered in a 12-year-old’s best interests. One particularly nasty complication is fistulous, where the anus and pelvis fuse together for lack of a developed pelvic floor. Before modern medicine, this would cause many girls to die of starvation and/or fecal infections.
The bigger problem, though, at least in the development world where medicine is available, is that a 12-year-old has a baby. And a 12-year-old, no matter how mature, is not old enough to care for a baby. The legal framework doesn’t exist for 12-year-old parents. They can’t consent to their own child’s medical treatments. In most American states, the social supports are frequently not there. A 12-year-old’s pregnancy is the result of a crime, except in the rare case it comes from another 12-year-old, which is not true in most cases.
Therefore, therapy and extra treatment are needed, even in cases where an adoption is processed. It’s often inadvisable because a 12-year-old is not old enough to comprehend giving up
