Mom Breaks The Hospital Record And Gives Birth To Massive Baby
If you ask any parent about giving birth, they will usually have one simple request. All they want is for their child to emerge from the womb fully healthy. While some parents might wish for a boy or a girl, most parents are simply praying for a healthy birth with few complications. At times like these, it almost feels greedy to ask for anything else, doesn’t it?Maira was much like any other mother in this respect. She took great care of her baby during her pregnancy. She ate healthy foods, got regular checkups and did everything that her doctors told her to do. This mother to be resides in Brazil and she began to grow slightly concerned as her stomach continued to expand. Maria had grown very large in the midsection and began to believe that she was carrying twins as a result.Her six month ultrasound scan said otherwise. Not only was she not carrying twins, but the baby that she was carrying had grown to more than twice the size of a typical fetus. The doctor who performed her ultrasound told her that he had never seen a baby of this size in all his years of practicing. The child would need to be delivered by C-section in order to maximize the chances of survival.
Gabrielly was brought into our world this past September. The child broke hospital records by weighing in at over 12 pounds. Caring for such a large baby was a major adjustment for Maira, who had already given birth to three older children. According to Maira, carrying such a long and large baby was slightly uncomfortable at first. She is quickly getting used to it, though.
Being such a large baby led to some complications. Gabrielly was born with an enlarged heart and she also had some difficulty when it came to her breathing. After a few days of monitoring and support from hospital staff, she is now breastfeeding in a normal manner. Now that she has been brought home, the family is currently focused on finding clothes that are large enough to fit her body.
The newborn is already able to wear the clothes of a six month old. The story of this birth is a rather shocking one. If your jaw dropped as much as ours did while reading, then you will definitely want to pass this incredible story along to your closest friends and loved ones as soon as possible.
