A woman in Karnataka gave birth to the world’s heaviest baby girl on May 23. The weight of the baby is 6.8 kg.
The mother is a 19-year-old woman Nandini, who hails from Hassan. She is yet to name the girl.
Dr Venkatesh Raju, who is the local health officer in Hassan, said:
“In my 25 years of experience, I have never seen such a big baby. She is a miracle. I believe she is not only the heaviest baby born in India but the heaviest baby girl ever born in the world.”

But their concerns were soon put to rest as the baby turned out to be healthy and “does not have any health issues like irregular sugar levels or thyroid and was also breathing well”.
She also termed the baby as being “really big and beautiful.”
