German Woman Gives Birth to GIANT Baby

Consultant physician Matthias Knuepfer and nurse My take care of Germany's heaviest newborn at the neonatal intensive care ward of the University Hospital in Leipzig, Germany, Monday, July 29, 2013. Girl Jasleen was born four days ago weighing an extraordinary 6.110 grams and measuring 57.5 cm in length.

That's one big girl!

A baby born Friday in Germany is the country's largest-ever, at 13.47 pounds and 22.6 inches long.

Baby girl Jasleen arrived July 26 at University Hospital in Leipzig. Though babies of her size are often delivered via caesarean section, Jasleen's mother gave birth vaginally.


The mother had a previously undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes, doctors discovered. The condition usually develops around the 24th week of pregnancy and can lead to larger-than-average newborn size.

Both daughter and mother are doing well after the birth, though Jasleen remains in the neonatal care unit, doctors said, according to the German newspaper Der Spiegel.

Jasleen takes the title of Germany's biggest baby from a 13-pound boy named Jihad, born in Berlin in 2011.

In March, a British mother gave birth vaginally to a 15 lb., 7 oz. baby boy named George.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest baby ever was born to Anna Bates of Canada in 1879. The 7'5" mother and her 7'11" husband welcomed a 23 lb. 12 oz. baby boy, but he died 11 hours later.
