A mum has given birth to an enormous 5.75kg baby - without any pain relief at all!
The baby, Parker James Bell tipped the scales at 5.755kgs — 12lb 6oz — when he was born on Thursday at 39 weeks and three days. He is the biggest bub ever to be born at Blacktown Hospital.
Doctors told his parents Nikki, 28, and Michael, 30, they had never seen a baby as big as Parker in the history of the hospital.
“My first baby went until 41 weeks and 3 days — lucky I didn’t go that far he would have been 6kg plus,” mum Nikki told the Daily Telegraph.
Mum, husband Michael, baby Parker and big sister Maddison, 20 months, are all doing well back at home in Riverstone.
But Parker’s arrival has since made headlines around the country, after his birth was shared on the Blacktown Midwifery Group’s Facebook Page.
“New record,” the post read.
“We are happy to report the not so little Parker and Mum Nikki are doing well. Welcome to the world Parker, you’ll be the talk of Blacktown Maternity for a long time to come.”
It was expected that Parker would be a big baby when he was estimated at 3.5kg at his 34 week scan.
But despite Parker’s size Nikki praised all mum’s.
“I’m sure all births hurt, whether it’s 1.7kg of 5.7kg — they all hurt,” she told the publication.
