Overweight Baby Born without Caesarean Section


Baby Jasleen weighing almost a stone and measuring 22.6 inches long has been born in Germany on 26th July. She weighed a massive 13.47 pounds (6.10kg). Babies her size are usually born via a caesarean section, but she was born naturally.

She is now officially the largest new-born in Germany.

The mother gave birth at University Hospital in Leipzig and discovered she had a previously undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes, German newspaper Der Spiegel reports.

This condition, which develops at around the 24th week of pregnancy, can lead to a larger than usual baby size. Although both mother and daughter are doing well, Jasleen remains in the neonatal care unit.
