10-year-old girl gives birth to baby after complaining about stomach pains
A ten-year old Brazilian girl gave birth to a baby after complaining about stomach pains while she was at school.
The girl was taken to the hospital by her teachers where the doctors discovered that she was about to give birth, after it was established that she was seven months pregnant.
The baby was born by natural birth last week.
The authorities are investigating the case as they believe the girl fell pregnant after being raped by her mother’s 40-year-old boyfriend. This was after the girl told her friends that her mother’s boyfriend was threatening to kill her mother and brother if she told anyone about the abuse. The man had already been accused of rape once before.
The child’s mother said she did not notice that the girl was pregnant and had never noticed any changes in her daughter’s body.
