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 agree. Most people with THYROID PROBLEMS are stuck in the obesity state. Its not like she could lose weight, and having surgery could cause more problems

    • That’s what the haters don’t know aye!!! Saying this and that about her but never think that she’s only human!!!

    • this lady looks like a thyroid sufferer and its a miracle that she is now a mother god be praised she went ahead and had her little boy regardless and her health would have suffered greatly I think she will have a new lease in life now with a new baby to care for haters will be haters but this baby will be blessed as will she for not aborting a precious life God loves us all equally I hope she will be able to breast feed her child that alone will be good for her as well as breast feeding will shrink her uterus and make her shrink back to the size she was (450 pounds) the caesarian section will give her pain and grief and she will be in so much pain poor darling -men have no idea how hard it is and should refrain from commenting in a derogative manner its rude crude and uncalled for- we are witnessing a miracle in our lifetime her record size baby boy will one day single handedly put Australia on the map- best/biggest rugby player maybe in the making?? Tallest Australian maybe? Good luck and happiness despite the haters God bless you mum and bub you are awesome xo

    • no. Just stop. Thyroid problems account for 5-10 pounds MAX. And if the person has a thyroid problem, their medication will clear up any weight problem. Before I get comments back, I know this because I have that same thyroid problem and my weight is under control. I also have a degree in molecular biology and was premed.

      The fact is, people love excuses. Where there is a will, there’s a way.

  2. How will she look after a baby when she can’t look after herself. Plus it says she couldn’t fit in a car. I hope they teach the child (and mother) good dietry and excersise habits

    • Completely agree – I hope proper help is given. In the UK the baby would be taken into care whilst she sorted herself out. Mobility is major factor here, if she is not mobile and cannot fit in a car then she cannot move properly to look after a baby/toddler etc. If a parent cannot look after themselves then they cannot look after a child.

    • Kat does this go for people in wheelchairs or other physical disabilities? Their children should be taken as well all of you are just clueless.

    • Yes it goes for them as well. If you can’t get up, how can you take care of a baby?

  3. “who’s delivery” c’mon now… surely we can do better than that…

  4. I feel sorry for the guy who filled Her..
    Glad they both well but that guy is sick and needs help. Xx

  5. Firstly, Congratulations to mum on the birth of her little boy BUT how is she going to care for him?? She couldn’t walk into the emergency room so how is she going carry him around when he needs settling? She doesn’t fit into a car so how is she going to take him for Dr check-ups? Also did she have a partner to fall pregnant or was it IVF? If so what were those Drs thinking allowing someone morbidly obese have that procedure. I think having a baby is such a blessing but you need to be able to properly care for them and yourself (by yourself if need be) once they arrive.

    • Does this go for those who are paraplegic or quadrapelegic? Blind, having only one extremity? Suffer from dwarfism, they take the risk of having a child of abnormal short stature?

    • And they shouldn’t have babies either.
