Woman gives birth to baby weighing nearly 15lbs... twice the average size


A WOMAN IN Aberdeen, Washington has given birth to a baby weighing nearly 15 pounds

Grays Harbor Community Hospital says the average newborn weighs about 7 ½ pounds at birth.

Yessica Ortiz Delgado delivered a boy named Francisco Leon Ortiz who weighed 14 pounds and 11 ounces.


Delgado’s two other children were about 12 pounds each at birth but the mother didn’t expect her newest to be so large.

Grays Harbor Talks reports that the baby’s father had to “run out and buy new clothes” for their son, as they had brought outfits for an average sized newborn with them.
