 youngest mother of china............... 

A nine-year-old girl in China has reportedly become the world's youngest mother after giving birth to a boy by Caesarean section.

According to the 'Daily Express', the unnamed girl was brought to a hospital in Changchun when she was more than eight months pregnant, and two days later she gave birth by Caesarean section to a boy weighing six pounds. Despite the girl's age and potential for medical complications, both the mother and baby are doing well, the British tabloid said.

The family has apparently refused to discuss the circumstances of the pregnancy but had reported it to police. Some reports suggested the girl had been raped. In fact, in China, sex with a child under the age of fourteen is an automatic rape conviction. 

Police were said to be trying to establish who the father was.

Young pregnancies are said to be on the rise in China. About 30 per cent of recent abortions in a Shanghai hospital were carried out on schoolgirls, the report said.

A 12-year-old girl is thought have become Britain's youngest ever mother when she gave birth in 2006.

Comment from Dr.Praveen Ramachandra: The root cause is earlier onset of precocious puberty which ,means earlier maturation of girl child into womenhood. its an endocrinologic disorder. treatment to stop the progression of premature onset of puberty is very much available with modern science/ modern medicine. the disorder is causes tremendous psychological stress on child and parents....often leading to social abuse......rape....pregnancy.....
