An Indian Woman Gives Birth To The Heaviest Baby Girl, Weighing 6.8 Kg!

An Indian Woman Gives Birth To The Heaviest Baby Girl, Weighing 6.8 Kg!

A woman in Karnataka gave birth to a baby girl on the 23rd of May, and she weighed 15 lbs or 6.8 kg at the time of birth. She was delivered by C-section to Nandini, who’s just 19 years old.

Commenting on the fact that the average weight of a baby is 7.5 lbs, Dr, Venkatesh Raju, the local health officer, said, “In my 25 years of experience, I had never seen such a big baby. She is a miracle. I believe she is not only the heaviest baby born in India but the heaviest baby girl ever born in the world. I had personally gone to see her. She is a beautiful gift of God. I am happy that she is doing well.”

Nandini also weighs 94 kg and is 5’9″ tall, but she doesn’t suffer from high sugar levels or diabetes, which is the primary reason for overweight babies to be born.

Dr. Poornima Manu, who delivered the healthy baby girl, said the following:
“She came as a big surprise for all of us. The surgery took place for nearly half an hour and it was free of any risk. She is really big and beautiful. She does not have any health issues like irregular sugar levels or thyroid and is breathing well. We were initially concerned about her sugar levels but that is normal. The mother had made regular visits for check-ups at the hospital and never showed signs of gestational diabetes or thyroid disorders. Both the mother and the child are doing fine and we will discharge them once we are confident of the baby’s health.”

Nandini’s daughter is the heaviest baby girl ever born in India, a new Indian record.

Although the record books are divided on her being the heaviest baby girl in the world, her bagging the Indian record is guaranteed. The heaviest baby girl in the world recorded by Guinness was giantess Anna Haining Bates, who weighed around 18 lbs or 8.2 kg at birth, in 1846. Funnily, even her son was the heaviest baby to have ever been born, weighing in at 22 lbs or almost 10kg.
The baby girl is healthy and is in the neonatal intensive care unit for further observations until discharge.
