A 33-year-old mother in Tan Ky District of the central province of Nghe An naturally gave birth to a baby girl weighing 5.5kg yesterday.
|The baby is 5.5kg.|
The woman was hospitalized for birth medical assistance with the 40-week pregnant. Through examination, physicians decided that the woman could give birth naturally despite her heavy baby.
Doctor Giang Viet Hop from the Department of Obstetrics acknowledged that this is a challenging childbirth. Medical workers usually perform cesarean section (C-section) on pregnant women with heavy babies for their safety.
However, after considering the health of both mother and the baby, physicians decided to let the mother give birth naturally. With the assistance of pregnancy-care medical workers, the mother successfully delivered her third baby safely.
She had naturally given birth to her first baby of 3.8kg and the second one of 4.8kg. SGGP
