FOX News is all over the story of a 550-pound woman giving birth to a healthy baby in Russia today.
Doctors at Moscow’s Maternity Clinic Number 8 were, as the news story says, patting themselves on the back for delivering the healthy baby of a woman “whose weight would normally preclude conception,” according to the docs.
Preclude conception? What’s with that?
“The thing is that as a rule, women over 150 kilograms have such severe
hormonal irregularities they simply can’t get pregnant,” Irina Osadcheva, the deputy head of the clinic, explained.
Huh. The 34-year-old first-time mom, who is identified only as Nonna M., had a boy weighing 4.4 pounds after a five-hour induced labor. Good for her! Congrats to Nonna M.
And congrats to this mom!
