3. Beulah Hunter
Beulah Hunter fought something was wrong with her when the baby failed to pop out at the classic nine months deadline.
Before going any further, please note this is not a folk tale crafted by a mother anxious to see her name written in the Guinness Book. Experts documented the pregnancy that lasted an astonishing 375 days, 95 more than the standard duration.
The most reasonable explanation is that the fetus developed slower than normal. In healthy pregnancies, the moment of birth coincides with the moment the fetus gets robust enough to withstand the conditions outside the womb.
Beulah, who was 25 at that moment, gave birth to a perfectly healthy little girl that she named Penny Diana. You can imagine the unique bond that formed between the two.
