One Sydney mum has given birth to a very very big baby boy WITHOUT any pain relief. At all. Even the doctors have said that it is the biggest baby they have ever seen. Without any pain relief, the mum gave birth to the biggest bub ever seen at Blacktown Hospital. The baby, Parker James Bell, who was born on Thursday at 39 weeks and three days, tipped the scales at 5.755 kgs, or 12 lb 6 oz. Doctors told his parents, Nikki and Michael, that they couldn’t recall a bigger bundle of joy arriving at the hospital.
Nikki Bell from Riverstone gave birth to her son Parker, thus being one of the biggest ever natural births to ever be recorded at Blacktown Hospital. The baby, Parker, who is in a perfectly healthy condition is currently at home with his big sister Maddison, was expected to be a big baby as he hit 3.5 kg at his 24-week growth scan. Nikki said that despite her baby’s size, she doesn’t think that her efforts are any more different than other mums, saying:
My first baby went until 41 weeks and 3 days — lucky I didn’t go that far he would have been 6kg plus. I’m sure all births hurt, whether it’s 1.7kg of 5.7kg — they all hurt.
The Bell family are now planning how Parker’s height will work to his advantage, saying:
Hopefully, he will be a bit of a football player, maybe a front rower, that’ll keep his dad happy.
Even the Blacktown Midwifery Group’s Facebook page posted regarding Parker’s arrival, with a lot of people commenting on his size and even comparing Parker to their six-month-old babies.
