An Indonesian woman gives birth to a 19 pound baby. It is an unusual or you can say, a rare case. The reports from Daily Express said that a 19 pound baby is born to an Indonesian woman. The birth of this baby is making headlines because he weighs twice more than a newborn baby. According to Kidshealth.org.
“The newly born baby weighs between 6 pounds, 2 ounces (2,812 grams) and 9 pounds, 2 ounces (4,173 grams)”.
According to this information the birth of the baby is truly amazing. As the baby weighs 19 pounds, obviously it is delivered via C-section. The baby was removed by the doctor from her mother’s womb surgically.
According to Daily Express, they quoted the surgeon as saying,
“This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him of his mum’s womb. His legs were so big.”
This case is rare but it doesn’t mean that it never happened before. The 19 pound baby is not the heaviest baby ever born. According to PregnancyAndBaby.com, in 1800′s the heaviest baby was born in Canada. The baby weighs 23 pounds, 12 ounces, and was 30 inches long. It was also reported that he died shortly after his birth. Not only this, the world’s healthiest baby was born to an Italian woman in 1955. The baby born to an Italian woman weighs 22 pounds 8 ounces.
