Woman in Brazil gives birth to giant baby boy weighing more than 16 pounds
SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) - A woman in northeastern Brazil has given birth to what one doctor called a "giant baby," a boy weighing 7.57 kilograms (16.7 pounds).
Ademilton, a 16.7-pound baby boy born by caesarean section at the Albert Sabin
Francisca Ramos dos Santos, 38, gave birth to the healthy boy named Ademilton on Tuesday at a hospital in Salvador, 1,450 kilometres northeast of Sao Paulo. He was the largest baby born at the Albert Sabin Maternity Hospital in its 12-year history, the hospital said.
"Obviously the baby was born by caesarean section," hospital director Rita Leal said. "Both mother and baby are doing just fine."
Ademilton "could truly be considered a giant baby, for he was born weighing what a six-month-old-baby normally weighs," pediatrician Luiz Sena Azul told the Correio da Bahia newspaper.
Santos has four other children - ages nine, 12, 14, and 15 - who were born weighing between 3.5 kilograms (7.7 pounds) and five kilograms (11 pounds).
"She knew Ademilton would be a big baby, but not this big" Leal said. "She, her husband and the hospital staff were caught by surprise."
The average weight for newborns in Brazil is 3.5 kilograms (7.7 pounds) for boys and three kilograms (6.6 pounds) for girls.
