The 10 Oddest Mothers In The World

5 views

If there is something that binds us all as humans, it’s the fact that we all have a mother. When the word, “Mother” or “Mom” come to our minds, we usually have a vision of our own mother, as well as society’s stereotypical mother that includes cooking, cleaning, and taking care of her dear children. While each mother is different, they usually all share some similar qualities when it comes to appearances and child rearing. When a mother comes along that defies those stereotypes and don’t share anything in common with other mothers, they stand out in a crowd. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing, that is up to you to decide. Here is a list of the ten oddest mothers in the world.
One of the most controversial mothers is Lina Medina. She gave birth at the young age of five. We know what you’re thinking; how disgusting! The baby was born via cesarean section (because of Lina’s small pelvis) in Peru in 1939, and Lina has never revealed who her son’s biological father is. Lina is still alive, however, her son died at the age of 40. Then we have the story of Thomas Beatie, who was originally born a woman, but then transitioned to being a male. When his wife couldn’t conceive, Thomas resumed his womanly duties and was able to get pregnant with his eggs and donor sperm. While people publicize this as the first man to get pregnant, to be fair, Thomas still had his woman parts to make it happen.
Standing at just 2 feet, Stacey Herald was told that giving birth to a baby could kill her. However, she has defied doctors and has given birth to three children, even though the pregnancy leaves her bedridden and affects her mobility. Elizabeth Buttle has had two children, but the kids are 41 years apart. Elizabeth first gave birth in 1956, and her second child was born in 1997 when she was 60 years old, making her a rather old mother to start over. Speaking of older mother, Rajo Devi Lohan holds the record for being the oldest first time mother at the age of 70. For 40 years, she and her husband attempted to conceive, but couldn’t. This was rather bad since they lived in a village where having children is a staple in their society. But Rajo was able to finally have a child thanks to fertility treatments. Speaking of older mothers, Omkari Panwar already had daughters, but she wanted to have a son to be her heir. She had in-vitro fertilization and gave birth to twin boys.
While some mothers struggle to get pregnant, Carole Horlack has delivered 12 babies over a course of 13 years. She has found a lot of joy in being a surrogate mother, and continues to help families get their start in life. Then we have Nadya Suleman, who had octuplets in 2009, and for this she gathered national attention and causing people to question whether in-vitro should be used so liberally.
