A British woman gave birth to the 2nd biggest baby ever born in the UK recently. George Joseph King was born 15 pounds, 7 ounces and given just a 10% chance for survival.
Mom Jade Packer delivered the large baby naturally at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and unfortunately, had trouble doing so. He was so big his shoulders got stuck during delivery and he stopped breathing. Doctors finally were able to resuscitate him after 20 minutes.
It was a scary moment for parents Jade and Ryan King. But Georgie pulled through.
On his size, mom said, “It was a massive shock for everyone – no one had any idea he would be this big. During the pregnancy I was just getting bigger and bigger. It makes it even more special to have him home now after all he has been through.”
Baby George has been home for 6 weeks and is already wearing clothes for a 6month old baby.
