JAKARTA – A woman gave birth to a 19 pound baby through Caesarean section!
A mother in Jakarta gave birth to the biggest baby ever recorded in Indonesia. The boy is 19.2 pounds and already two feet long!
It is believed his size is due to his mother having gestational diabetes. It caused the boy to receive too much glucose, which caused his rapid growth.
Although a C-section was done to make the delivery easier, doctors still had difficulty getting him out. Dr. Binsar Sitanggang said, “This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his mum’s womb. His legs were so big.”
He weighed nearly as much as a one-year-old, and looks over twice the size of a newborn child. Despite his monstrous size, he does not have any medical issues or complications.
