Darya Sudnishnikova who got pregnant at 13 after she was raped by teen banned from school after giving birth
A Russian girl, Darya Sudnishnikova, who gave birth to a daughter, Emilia, at 13 years old, has said that her life has been left in tatters after being banned from going to her school. Sudnishnikova, at first, had claimed her 10-year-old prepubescent boyfriend, Ivan, had got her pregnant. But when medical experts said this was impossible, she revealed that the father was actually a 16-year-old boy who had raped her.
Sudnishnikova is from the small nuclear town of Zheleznogorsk in Russia. She amassed thousands of social media followers as she documented her pregnancy and gave birth to Emilia in August 2020. While she was pregnant, she revealed that she was being refused treatment by maternity hospitals and that she had to travel to another city to find doctors who would accept her.
In August 2020, Sudnishnikova gave birth to a girl after a "tough" delivery. The birth took place in a perinatal clinic in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. Ivan was not allowed to be present during the delivery. Sudnishnikova had insisted when she was pregnant, that despite her age, she planned to keep the child and raise it, saying, "When I was thinking about the delivery process, I was scared, but then I saw my baby during an ultrasound. It was so tiny and cute. Now I am ready to give birth."
Now, Sudnishnikova has said that she has not been allowed to return to school after becoming a mother, according to The Sun. Sudnishnikova, now 14 years old, said that her teachers refused to let her return because she had fallen too far behind with her studies as a result of the time she took off during her pregnancy.
She also said that the school is increasingly concerned about the bad publicity that her presence might attract and that the move had totally "ruined" her plans to finish her schooling and go on to get a good job.
Sudnishnikova also claimed that she was branded fat after putting on seven stones during her pregnancy. She said she has since shed five stones with the help of a nutritionist and says that she now "looks exactly how she wants to." She also said that she has decided to help others with her successful weight loss and is writing a guide for other young women who want to lose weight after pregnancy.
Sudnishnikova became a media sensation when she and her boyfriend appeared on Russian television to talk about their relationship. However, experts expressed doubts that Ivan could have been the father owing to his under-developed sperm. Dr Evgeny Grekov, a urology and andrology expert stated that tests had revealed that there were no sperm cells or testosterone and that Ivan could not have been the one who had impregnated her.
