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. I heard she was only 450 before she got preggers. Just couldn’t control the cravings.

    She’ll be back in her four man tent-dress in no time.

    • Best comment yet – love it.

      Tis interesting what’s child abuse these days. Malnourished kids, can be taken. Big rigs, no worries. Two different ends of the spectrum, both no good for the kid however we justify one.

  2. That is disgusting, allowing a baby to get morbidly obese, the child should be taken away from her. People look down on mothers for smoking drinking and doing drugs while pregnant as it affects the baby’s Health. Well so does eating! This should be reported as child abuse. That poor kid will struggle growing up if he doesn’t die early of diabetes is heart related illnesses.

    • Your an ass…. how could you ever say something so cruel and mean? Obesity is a disease… some people can’t help it…. its not her fault nor the baby’s fault…

      Congrats momma hope every thing works out for you both!!! Pure happiness!

    • How ignorant are you catrina, you are part of the problem with our society. Yana is right!

    • Agreed with you Catrina people are so hatreds. Ari stop with negative comments just don’t comment if you don’t like her.

    • In my experience mothers do not give up smoking when pregnant.It is an addiction. Eating can also be an addiction. Nine times out of 10 obesity and eating disorders are the result of physical,sexual or psychological abuse. When assholes like you have children theres every chance they will end up with some kind of “problem”. Had this lady been loved and cared for, for the person she is, her life may have turned out differently. If we only value people based on their appearance we miss out on so much. I hope that she and her baby will be so beautifully loved and cared for that she will be inspired to make healthy changes because she begins to see that her life does indeed have meaning, value and purpose.

    • How the hell would she know if her child is obese? When it is in side of her dumb ass!

    • In the UK you a have your children taken away by Social Services if they become obese

    • How do you justify mothers who doesn’t cook proper food for their kids who goes to school hungry? Should we take those kids also? Parents who fight(physically) in front of their child making them adults full of trauma, parents who get divorced for cheating (no respect for the other human being), parents that doesn’t respect the elderly, parents who smokes and drink in front of their child, etc… should all have their children taken away?
      According to your comment please do NOT have a child because it will be consider a waste air just like you and will not bring anything good for our society.

    • obesity is not a disease its greed that makes them like this its digusting bet all the fat patrol are the ones saying that obesity is a disease get yourself another family sized kfc bucket ffs!

    • Lucy Loo, greed is certainly NOT the only cause of obesity. Some people end up on medication for life, which the side effects are weight gain. And even if eating is an addiction, unlike smoking or drinking, you can’t go cold turkey! You need to eat a certain amount to stay alive. It is like saying to a smoker, you have to give up, but in order to do that you have to keep smoking 1 or 2 a day to stay alive…….you cannot give up completely then! Just like some people can’t put on weight no matter how hard they try, and people label them as anorexic, when they aren’t. People are so quick to make assumptions when they don’t know all the facts!!!!

    • How was she suppose to stop her baby from getting that large? Put the baby on a diet in utero? What as asshat comment. Did you even read the article?

  3. Aslong as the baby is healthy is all that matters

    • Healthy? It’s OBESE AT BIRTH! That’s incredibly unhealthy and she’s given him a handicap from the word go. This is incredibly irresponsible.

  4. Jesus! All those soppy comments do my nut in! Women quit smoking while pregnant, why didnt she quit eating so much. Poor mother my arse!

      Rhys what an idiot. You can diet all through your pregnancy and not get smaller. Do you know first hand if she weighed 600 before pregnancy or after? She could have very well weighed over 600 and lost some. Or she may have maintained her prepregnancy weight. Get an education on pregnancy please.

  5. she should be ashamed and she should be prosecuted under child abuse. sickening
