Doctors confirm newborn as the heaviest baby ever born in India and are calling him a ‘miracle’.
Indian mother, Firduous Khatun, 36, has welcomed her ninth child a very healthy 14.77lbs boy! Despite the baby’s big size, he was delivered naturally and in just 15 minutes!
Dr Anjana Gupta, who delivered the baby, said: ‘He is a miracle baby. In my 21 years of experience, I had never seen a new-born as big as him. We could not believe how, despite his big size, he smoothly came out. Though his shoulders got stuck for few seconds, within three minutes he was in my hands. He was so big that he was not fitting in my hands. He is a beautiful baby. Though he had respiratory issues initially, both he and his mother are now doing fine,’ medics said.
Mrs Khatun is not diabetic, which is usually what causes obesity in new-born infants, Dr Gupta said. She added: ‘We do not know why the baby is so big but he is healthy and all his parameters are fine.’
Well that made me shudder! Power to you mummy. That’s a pretty good effort.
