UK Baby Arrives Weighing Almost 14lbs!
Sharon Needham and partner Paul Crossland won't have any use for their 0-3 or even 3-6 month clothes after their son, Harry, arrived weighing a whopping 13lbs 15ozs!
Mother of five Miss Needham, had to give birth by Caesarean section because doctors suspected the baby was too big for a normal birth.
Left conscious during the operation, only seperated by a curtain, Paul and Sharon were left speechless when the midwife handed Harry over.
‘We were both flabbergasted. When the nurses popped him over the curtain we were both speechless. I thought they'd given me someone else's baby.The astonished mother, said:
‘There has never been a history of big babies in the family but I knew he would be fairly heavy because I couldn't walk with Harry in the final days of pregnancy.
She was even more uncomfortable with him that during her twin pregnancy 13 years ago.
Medical staff calculated that she was carrying around three litres of water and her placenta weighed much heavier than normal - at 1.6kg.
