Mother Gives Birth to 13-pound, 10-ounce Girl

13 Pound babyA new mother celebrated this Memorial Day weekend with a big surprise. On Friday, she gave birth to a 13-pound, 10-ounce baby girl at Whittier Hospital Medical Center.

The girl is, “the largest baby born at the hospital that anyone can remember,” according to the hospital statement.

“She’s quiet,” her mother said of the first day with her new baby, who’s responses were reported as relatively calm and quiet, especially for a newborn.

Hospital spokesman Jay Greer said the baby’s birth weight was almost double that of a normal baby.  “It was a surprise,” Hernandez said, who’s first child weighed 8 pounds, 8 ounces at birth, and her second weighed 10 pounds 10 ounces.
