BENGALURU:  A 19-year-old woman in Hassan district has given birth to a baby girl considered to be ‘heaviest’ in the country, weighing about 6.82 kg.

Nandini from Doddihalli in Belur taluk gave birth to the baby on May 23 around 6.15 pm at Hassan Institute of Medical Sciences.

“The baby was delivered after conducting a caesarean surgery” HIMS Medical Superintendent Dr K Shankar told PTI.

“It is the heaviest baby so far reported in India, last one reported was somewhere around 5.8 kg,” he said. Nandini’s husband Arun works for a bakery.

Both baby and mother are healthy, but as the case is “unusual” doctors have decided to keep the baby under observation and are assessing the reason for the over-weight.

“We have done the abdominal scanning of the baby, we will be doing blood test as well,” Mr Shankar said.
