11 Year Old Girl gives birth: An 11 year old girl has given birth to a healthy baby boy, making her the youngest mom in the Northeast.Â It’s very unusual to see someone as young as 11 giving birth; however, one must realize that a girl can get pregnant even before she starts her very first period.
There are many challenges that face an 11 year old who becomes pregnant.Â For instance, their bones aren’t completely fused yet and their pelvis structure isn’t quite ready for giving birth.
High levels of pregnancy hormones also could stunt the growth ofÂ many young girls that become pregnant at this age.
One has to wonder how an 11 year old will take care of a baby? After all, babies are a ton of work.Â Chances are, her mom and dad will play an integral role in raising their grand child.
Children are having sex younger and younger.Â There are many teenagers that have sex before the age of 15.Â The earlier children start engaging in sexual activity, the younger they could become parents.
The baby boy that was born weighs five pounds, which is lower thanÂ many full term babies born to mothers in the typical child rearing years.
