Mother Gives Birth to 11lbs 5oz Baby, Weighiпg as Mυch as a Bowliпg Ball

Newborn weight has trended upward in the world. In the past few years, babies that would’ve been considered gargantuan have become more commonplace with record-breaking deliveries recorded in. A mother has revealed how she has given birth to a baby weighing the same as a bowling ball over 11 pounds.

Helen Sellers, 34, from Leeds, ɢᴀᴠᴇ ʙɪʀtʜ to her daughter Celia, who weighed a whopping 11lbs 5oz. The mum-of-two, a ᴍᴇɴtᴀʟ ʜᴇᴀʟtʜ nurse, even said that Celia was one of the biggest babies her ᴍɪᴅᴡɪꜰᴇ had ever ᴅᴇʟɪᴠᴇʀᴇᴅ in her 16 year career. She revealed how nurses had ‘taken ages’ to get the baby out during her Cᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ, adding: “I initially wanted to try natural ᴅᴇʟɪᴠᴇʀʏ, but I’m glad I didn’t now because I’m not sure she would have come out.”

During the ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ Helen had a big bump, with the mother-of-two adding: “My bump was huge, I always had people asking me if I was having twins. There was one lady at work who asked me a few times if I was sure it wasn’t twins! The doctors tested me for ɢᴇstᴀtɪᴏɴᴀʟ ᴅɪᴀʙᴇtᴇs but they were ɴᴇɢᴀtɪᴠᴇ.” Roman, Celia’s brother, who is now three, was under 9 pounds when he was born, as were Helen and Carl, her husband, who is now 37. She said: “Carl is 6 foot 7 now, but he wasn’t a big baby, so we’re not sure why Celia was so big. While I was ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴt, my consultant said that the baby was going to be big, but not as big as Roman.”

 

Thankfully Celia arrived happy and healthy, and her birth ended up making her a star around the hospital. Helen said: “The midwives were laughing a bit and saying she was really big. She was the talk of the ward, they all wanted to come and look at her because she was so big. My ᴍɪᴅᴡɪꜰᴇ had worked for 16 years and she said Celia was the second biggest baby she’d ever seen. I never expected her to be that weight.We played guess the weight with my family, and my cousin put 11lbs and I thought that was so cheeky, but he was right!”

When Celia was born, she had to immediately change into size 0-3 clothing because none of the newborn clothing fit her. Helen said: “I had bought a couple of baby grows that were up to one month, and I didn’t even bother getting them out the packet. I knew they wouldn’t fit her. I had bought some 0-3 month stuff, and she’s already in 3-6 month clothes now.”
