7. Stacey Herald
Stacey Herald holds with unexpected dignity the title for smallest mother in the world.
Little over 60cm in height, Stacey suffers from a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Despite the fact that doctors gave her slim chances of survival in case of pregnancy, Stacey is now the proud mother of three.
Most women dread the thought of delivering babies because it will wreak havoc on their perfect bodies. For unlucky Stacey, the risk was several magnitudes worse. Doctors forwarded the idea that a bigger baby would have crushed her lungs and heart in an attempt to reach full growth inside her body.
You will not be happy to hear two of her children inherited the mother’s bone malformation. Miracles do happen, but sometimes they come with a pinch of salt.
