Woman Amazed Doctors By Giving Birth To A 13 Pound 5 Ounce Baby Via C-section: It Was The Heaviest Baby They'd Ever Seen
Childbirth is, to many, a miraculous event. Many mothers would be eager to describe it as both an agonizing and beautiful experience. Bringing a new life into the world is, more often than not, a celebrated and highly anticipated occurrence.
While many women can give birth via a normal delivery, others often have to give birth via a c-section owing to various complications, or simply by choice.
Such was Chrissy Corbitt's case She is from Keystone Heights, in Florida. What followed her C-section wasn't shocking only to the mother, but to doctors and nurses as well.
Chrissy and her husband, Larry Corbitt, already had four children and were joyfully preparing to welcome their fifth.
In the beginning, it seemed like a normal, healthy pregnancy until the fourth month when a growth spurt of sorts began. Her tummy wouldn't stop growing. May 15th was her due date and Chrissy was excited to meet her daughter, Carleigh, for the first time.
From her experience with her other kids, who weighed between 9 and 10 pounds at birth, she already knew that the baby would be big.
However, nobody was prepared for what they saw. As Chrissy recalled, when the doctors pulled baby Carleigh out, they were all in awe, and she could hear their excitement.
They kept calling out different numbers and then finally showed her the baby and said ‘13.5.’ It was as though Chrissy had birthed a toddler.
Everyone was impressed and shocked at how big the child was, and the nurses commented that they had never seen such a big baby.
Carleigh was healthy and beautiful, and Chrissy couldn't be happier. According to Larry, they had to call the companies they had bought diapers from in order to find out if it was possible to exchange them for a bigger size.
At three weeks, Carleigh was wearing clothes that would fit a 9-month-old baby. Larry joked that, eventually, they had to donate some of the things they bought pre-birth to a local church as there was no way they would fit.
Larry also said that Carleigh would be their last and final child. The Corbitts are a big and delighted family.
A video uploaded to the Inside Edition’s’ YouTube page, showing Chrissy and Carleigh, has already been viewed over 2 million times.
