Australia: 600-Pound Woman Gives Birth to 40-Pound Baby

Perth | A 600-pound woman has given birth to a 40-pound baby at Perth’s King Edward Memorial Hospital, a record-breaking weight that could possibly make the newborn the largest baby ever born, reports the Western Australian Herald this morning.

The baby of gigantic size surprised doctors and staff members who were not fully prepared for such an event but miraculously managed to give birth to the 40-pound (18 kilos) baby who remains in a healthy state, has confirmed a hospital spokesman.

The single mother who’s delivery necessitated a surgical incision in the mother’s abdomen and uterus was done to prevent any harm to the baby and mother’s health and was undergone without any complications.


The 600-pound woman was brought in emergency by ambulance, her family unable to carry her in an automobile

The doctor who practiced the cesarean section first believed the woman to be pregnant with twins or even triplets.

“I have dealt with other women suffering from obesity before but this birth will stick with me until I die,” he told reporters with a large grin.

“I truly believed there was two or even three babies in there” he commented laughingly, “but no, it was just one big sturdy guy. He obviously has a career as a future rugby player” he added with humor.

The largest recorded baby in the world was previously thought to be a South African baby who is believed to have weighed 38 pounds (17.2 kilos) and was born in 1839.

The young boy of Zulu origin is reported to have grown to an impressive 7’6 feet or 2.28 meters high before he reached his 18th birthday.

  1. Poor mother. To be treated as an object of fascination ould be so hard in the first days of the babys life. I bet the poor lady had huge amount of nurses coming to be nosey in her room and wanting to take the baby off her so it could be gawked at. I hope she is given her privacy and left alone in peace. CongratulationS on a beautiful baby. I pray u r surrounded with peace and happiness.

    • I must say i am totally offended not by this lady having this beautiful baby but by the comment about nurses gawping at the baby…. Speaking as a nurse i would like to rightfully point out that as a nurse i was taught a lot better than that …we are taught not to be judgemental and to treat every patient with utmost respect and dignity …and i feel extremely offended that nurses are thought of in this disgusting way! You should feel embarrassed for making that small minded comment!! I would like to wish the mum and her beautiful boy an onward happy and hopefully blessed and healthy life x

    • shes had a huge amount of food oink oink!

  2. Congratulations to mother and baby

    • My concern is for the baby. Being able to regulate body temperature and blood glucose levels could be very difficult. I hope the mother and baby have active healthy lives.

    • why would someone have sex with this lets face it the mechanics would mean you need to prop apart the fat then lift the apron even if you did all that you would shurly would need a abnormally large penis anyway she has condemed that baby to a life of megger fat and short life maybe she only wanted all this inorder to get a free carer

  3. If the delivering doctor didn’t know how many babies she was carrying – had the mother received proper prenatal care? Poor baby must be struggling to maintain his insulin levels! wonder if DPCS will be involved.

    • Rachel I was thinking the same thing! I hope both the mother and son can receive the proper care they both may need to get them to a healthy weight so that they both can have a long, healthy, prosperous life. Prayers and good wishes goes out to them both. I think every woman deserves the chance to be a good mother and experience the joys of loving a baby, and watching him/her grow to be a good person.

    • it is impossible to use an USS on a woman of that size. a caesarean would have been done because they would have no way of knowing the presentation/position of the baby.

      I am an ultrasound technologist. There is equipment readily available to ultrasound grossly obese people. I’ve seen Beluga whales scanned and saw the babies they were carrying. A transvaginal ultrasound bypasses all that fatty tissue and sits against the cervix and uterus to visualize. No excuse not having a diagnostic ultrasound if prenatal care was given.

  4. He is too cute
