Heaviest baby weighing 5.2 kg ever born in Assam.
In Assam’s Silchar, a pregnant woman named Jaya Das has delivered a baby boy weighing 5.2 kg, which doctors claim to be the heaviest weight at birth for a newborn in the State.
Dr. Hanif Md. Afsar Alam Laskar, assisted by nurse Roselyn, Manjarul, and anesthetist Dr. Rajat Deb of Satindra Mohan Dev Civil Hospital said,
“It was a case of late delivery but we didn’t realize that the baby will weigh 5.2 kilograms. As per our knowledge, it is the heaviest baby ever born in Assam to date. The average weight of newborns in Assam is around 2.5 kilograms. There were newborns weighing around 4 kilograms in past but 5.2 kilograms for a newborn is a unique case. We have discussed with our senior officials and they also agreed with us.”
On Tuesday afternoon, a team of senior doctors performed the cesarean section procedure at a government hospital. The first child of Jaya Das and Badal Das weighed around 3.8 kilograms during birth.
Badal Das, father of the newborn said, This is our second child, the first one weighed around 4 kilograms.
