9-Year-Old Gives Birth

A 9-year-old girl from Ixtlahuacan de los Membrillos in Mexico gave birth to a 5.7lb baby girl via C-section. The attorney general is said to be looking for the father, a 17-year-old who she was dating.

“Due to her young age, we don’t know if she is being entirely truthful,” says Lino Ginzalez Corona, spokesperson at Jalisco State Prosecutor’s Office, who received an account of the relationship from the young mother who describes a loving relationship.

“She did not realize that she was pregnant until the seventh month,” said Corona. Her boyfriend suggested Dafne move in with him and to raise the child together but when the young mother refused, her boyfriend “decided to leave town two months ago,” says Corona.

The young girl, one of 11 children, is said to not understand what happened. Mostly because questions of “how does baby work?,” were not immediately answered.
