‘A woman from Bangalore has given birth to a baby girl weighing a whopping 6.8 kilograms, probably the heaviest female ever born in the world.’
Nandini from Hassan who had a weight of 95 kg and height of 5 ft has given birth to a girl baby through C-section. Though she had high blood glucose levels, the baby was healthy and did not have diabetes.
Dr Poornima Manu, the gynecologist who delivered the baby, said, "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."
