Baby born weighing 15lb 7oz
A baby has been born weighing 15lb 7oz.
George King popped out of his mother Jade Packer, 21, at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in South West England at twice the average weight of a newborn and despite only being given a 10 per cent chance of survival, he is now back home in Cheltenham six weeks later.
Jade told the Bristol Post newspaper: ‘It was a massive shock for everyone – no one had any idea he would be this big,’ Ms Packer told the Bristol Post. ‘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.’
But Jade has now been put off having any more children after enduring a 16-hour labour.
