The canonicity of this information is disputed.
Dr. Gail N. Jackson appears in The Oceanic Six: A Conspiracy of Lies.
She is a gynecologist interviewed about pregnancy and child development. She states that, at sixth months (which is how far along the official story claimed that Kate was in her pregnancy), the child would weigh roughly 1-1.5 pounds, and would be quite large. Therefore, the abdomen of a woman who was six months pregnant would be notably enlarged by that point, unless she was obese. She concludes, "Kate Austen could have been pregnant, but she was not six months pregnant."
Dr. Jackson then introduces two of her patients who are six months pregnant, and notes that their breasts and uteruses are noticeably enlarged by their pregnancy.
Later in the video, she notes that Aaron appeared to be much older the five weeks (which is what they had claimed) when the Oceanic 6 were rescued. Based on the size and development of the child, she says that he appears to be "at least two months" old.
This character is played by herself, the real life Dr. Gail Jackson, M.D., who is board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and practices medicine in the Los Angeles area.
