Moms are pretty amazing, and they do incredible things. The act of childbirth alone is pretty impressive, not to mention all the things they do while raising their kids. Some moms are a little more talented than others and go all out. They have even broken some interesting records. Check out these records broken by some very special mommas.
Smallest Mom To Give Birth
Stacy Herald is only 2 feet 4 inches tall and has brittle bone disease. She hasn’t only given birth to one child, but three. She holds the record for the smallest mom to ever give birth.
First Man To Give Birth
It may seem impossible, but it technically happened. Thomas Beatie became the first male to become pregnant in 2008. He is actually a transgender person who was born a female but became a male at the age of 23. Still, he chose to keep his reproductive organs, so he was able to get pregnant and deliver a baby.
Most Babies To Survive A Single Birth
There are a lot of multiples out there, but “Octomom” Nadya Suleman make history when she gave birth to six boy and two girls. She also faced a lot of criticism, but all the babies are healthy and happy.
Most Breastmilk Donated By A Mother
Breastmilk is great for babies, but some moms don’t have enough of it or can’t breastfeed at all. When that happens, the moms with extra sometimes offer to donate their own. One mom set the record for the most breastmilk donated with a whopping 87 gallons that she donated to Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas.
Most women are only pregnant for nine months, but one woman named Beulah Hunter was pregnant for 375 days. The pregnancy took place in 1945, and while there isn’t much evidence to support it, there are some people who recall the woman being pregnant for that time frame. The baby was said to develop more slowly than normal, which resulted in the longer pregnancy.
Most Number Of Children Had By One Woman
In the mid-18th century, the wife of Feodor Vasillyev gave birth to 69 children. She had 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets.
Oldest First Time Mother
Rajo Devi Lohan gave birth to her first child at age 70. She and her husband had been trying to conceive for 40 years. They were able to have a daughter via IVF.
First ‘Test Tube’ Mother
For women who can’t conceive on their own, “test tube” pregnancies are an option. Lesley Brown gave birth to Louise Joy Brown in July 1978, making her the first test tube mother. The baby was born healthy, and IVF is now a common practice.

When twins are born, they normally come out a few minutes or hours apart. Maria Jones–Elliott gave birth to her twin daughters four months apart. She had the first baby and stopped having contractions. Since the child was born early, the doctors decided to leave the other baby in the womb. She was born four months later.
All moms are great, even the ones that don’t hold a record.
These women all did something unique that either helped them set a record or break one. Who knows when another mom will break one of these records.
Science is always producing new ways to help couples conceive, and moms are always pushing the limits to see how many babies they can have or what other amazing acts they can do. These records are just the beginning.
Even if your mom doesn’t hold a world record, she is still pretty awesome. She might be the best at making peanut butter sandwiches or picking out birthday gifts. Do something nice for her today and think about how amazing she really is.
