Heaviest baby born in Dhaulagiri Hospital in Baglung

Baglung, Oct 27: A baby weighing 4.75 kilograms was born by natural birth in Dhaulagiri Hospital, the heaviest baby born in the hospital so far.

The health condition of the newborn and his mother is normal, the hospital said.

Malati Chhantyal Tamang, 32, of Jaimini Muncipality-3 in the district gave birth to the baby boy on Thursday, Nursing In-Charge of the hospital Devi Bhattarai said.

The baby boy was delivered even without the presence of specialist doctors in the hospital during the Dashain vacation.

The newborn is the fourth baby of Chhantyal.

Chhantyal said that she was suggested to visit a hospital in Pokhara to deliver the baby but got admitted to the Dhaulagiri Hospital considering that the new born would also be delivered without a caesarean section as all her three babies were born by natural birth.

Prior to this, a baby weighing 4.5 kgs was born in the Dhaulagiri Hospital but by caesarean section.
