A 6-1-kilogram baby girl born on May 15, 2020 in Soc Trang Province in southern Vietnam.

As the baby was big, doctors decided to do a C-section, although all her previous children had been vaginal deliveries, each born between 3.6 to 4.8 kilos.

The baby born Friday is the heaviest delivered to date at the Soc Trang hospital.

"Normally, a baby born at full term weighs 2.5-4 kilos on average," said Nguyen Thi My Ha, director of the hospital.

Despite being born heavy, the baby girl’s health indices were all normal, doctors said.

According to health experts, babies born abnormally heavy could face several problems including respiratory depression and hypoglycemia.

The heaviest baby delivered so far in Vietnam is a boy weighing 7.1 kilos in the northern province of Vinh Phuc in 2017. The second heaviest one is a baby girl in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai, born in 2008 weighing almost seven kilos. Two other babies delivered in Da Nang and Quang Nam Province in central Vietnam weighed 6.5 kilos at birth.
