Mom Give Birth A Big Bouncing Baby Girl
Newborn weight has trended upward in the world. In the past few years, babies that would’ve been considered gargantuan have become more commonplace, with record-breaking deliveries recorded in . We’re seeing more large babies now than ever before, and that might be because many of the factors. Helen Sellers, 34, from Leeds, gave birth to her daughter Celia, who ᴡᴇɪɢʜᴇᴅ a whopping 11lbs 5oz, five weeks ago. Helen, a mental health nurse, explained that Celia was one of the ʙɪɢɢᴇsᴛ babies her midwife had ever delivered in her 16 year career.
During the pregnancy Helen had a big ʙᴜᴍᴘ, with the mother-of-two adding: ‘My ʙᴜᴍᴘ was huge, I always had people asking me if I was having twins. There was one lady at work who asked me a few times if I was sure it wasn’t twins! The doctors ᴛᴇsᴛᴇᴅ ᴍᴇ Fᴏʀ ɢᴇsᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴᴀʟ ᴅɪᴀʙᴇᴛᴇs ʙᴜᴛ ᴛʜᴇʏ ᴡᴇʀᴇ ɴᴇɢᴀᴛɪᴠᴇ.’‘While I was pregnant, my consultant said that the baby was going to be big.’ she said
Helen revealed that the midwives had ʜɪʟᴀʀɪᴏᴜs ʀᴇᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴs to Celia’s size.
She said: ‘I had to have a C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ , and it took them ages to get her out. The midwives were laughing a bit and saying she was really big. She was the talk of the ward, they all wanted to come and look at her because she was so big. My midwife had worked for 16 years and she said Celia was the second ʙɪɢɢᴇsᴛ baby she’d ever seen.’
Celia had to go straight into 0-3 clothes when she was born, because none of the newborn clothes fit her.Helen said: ‘I had bought a couple of baby grows that were up to one month, and I didn’t even bother getting them out the packet. I knew they wouldn’t fit her. I had bought some 0-3 month stuff, and she’s already in 3-6 month clothes now.
