A 27-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital 1 day before giving birth when she showed signs of uterine contractions. On admission, she weighed about 100kg and had a medical history of gestational diabetes. During the ultrasound, the doctors also guessed that the baby in the mother’s belly this time was quite large, about 5kg, so she advised the mother to choose the cesarean section. Doctors said that with the results of examination and ultrasound, they are concerned that if they give birth vaginally, the mother will have difficulty giving birth, bleed easily, etc., and the fetus may also face many risks. than.
However, after careful consideration, the woman still decided to try to give birth vaginally and the doctors and medical staff had to do their best to support her. Because this is a difficult birth, the birth control team gathered a lot of highly qualified doctors and nurses.
The weight of the new born baby ZhouZhou is nearly 6kg.
The mother is given an injection to relieve pain from the time the cervix is dilated 5cm, until it is fully opened, she will enter the delivery room. Fortunately, she had a large pelvis and knew how to breathe and push, so in the end, with the utmost support from the doctor, she was able to give birth successfully. The official weight of baby ZhouZhou is even higher than the doctor’s prediction, exactly 5.98kg.
The boy was almost twice as heavy as another newborn born at the same time.
