Brazilian Lady With Diabetes Gives Birth to 14-Pound Girl

Filed under: In The News — @ September 2, 2006

A Brazilian woman with diabetes delivered a 14-pound baby by Caesarean section, and she’s so large that her feet each over her small crib, hospital officials reported Tuesday.

“Isabel Vitoria, who was born Sunday, measures nearly 23 1/4 inches, reported CNN, noting that “doctors said it was common for women with diabetes to give birth to large babies.”

Perhaps the lesson here is that if you’re pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, it’s very important to keep your blood sugar under control.
