Mom “Dreamed Of A Fat Baby” Before Giving Birth To A 14-Pounder With No Epidural

Giving birth isn’t easy. Especially if it’s a big ol’ fat baby. Especially without an epidural. So I imagine that this Australian mom had a rough time.

In Melbourne, Australia, Natashia Corrigan recently gave birth to Brian Jr., who weighed nearly 14 pounds. Oh, and she did it without an epidural.

Natashia was able to use laughing gas, but that didn’t mean it was easy by any means. “I think I was in a bit of shock because the birth was natural and I only had gas so I was still in a bit of shock just from that,” Natashia told Australia’s 7 News First.

To put that into perspective, the average baby weighs around 7.5 pounds at birth (though normal weights for babies range from 5.5 pounds to 10 pounds).

The baby, at over 6 kg, could be the heaviest baby ever born in the Australian state of Victoria.

Little (or big, I suppose) Brian was born at 40 weeks and five days.

Brian isn’t Natashia’s first child, though he’s definitely the biggest—her daughters weighed 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 7 lbs. 12 oz.

“I dreamed of a little fat baby,” Natashia told 7 News First. “I’ve always wanted a little fat baby and I’ve got a big one!”
