He caused a sensation in the delivery room. One midwife was unable to deliver the baby
When Alpha was born, it caused a sensation in the delivery room. The boy weighed almost six and a half kilograms and became the third largest newborn in the UK. What does it look like a year later?
1. She gave birth to a gigantic child
Before Alpha was born, Cherral Mitchell was already a mother of three: Lyon, Rogue-Angel and Twyli Bay. The 31-year-old did not plan to expand the family again, so decided to set up the contraceptive device.
However, fate had other plans for her – a few months later she again saw two lines on the test.
Cherral knew from the beginning that her child would not be among the smallest because her belly was much larger than in previous pregnancies.
Alpha was born on October 28, 2021 at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. It was so big that two medics had to give birth. He became very popular among midwives and quickly became known as the “hippo”.
– He weighed almost six and a half kilos. It was huge. After giving birth, he wore clothes dedicated to children who are already a few months old – recalls the 31-year-old.
2. The third largest newborn in the UK
Alpha was hailed the third largest newborn in the history of Great Britain. The undisputed record holder in terms of birth weight is Guy Carr, who was born in 1992, weighing over seven kilograms.
More than a year has passed since Alpha’s birth. The toddler is developing properly and his mother believes that she is slowly losing weight.
– He doesn’t seem so big anymore. Admittedly, he lost a bit of weight. It is definitely unique. We love him very much, says Cherral.
3. What should the body weight of the newborn be?
Is my baby too small? Or maybe was born overweight? New mothers sometimes ask themselves such questions.
Research shows that the majority of term newborns (around 95%) weigh between 2,800 and 3,800 g.
Newborn’s body weight depends on many factors, incl. from genetic conditions, the course of pregnancy and the occurrence of any pregnancy complaints.
The weight of the child after birth is influenced, for example, by the diet of a pregnant woman and physical activity during pregnancy. If a woman eats for two and leads a less active lifestyle, the child’s birth weight may be higher than the norm.
