Giant baby born naturally in Germany

Consultant physician Matthias Knuepfer and nurse My take care of Germany's heaviest newborn at the neonatal intensive care ward of the University Hospital in Leipzig, Germany, Monday, July 29, 2013.

Girl Jasleen was born four days ago weighing an extraordinary 6.110 grams and measuring 57.5 cm in length

Baby girl Jasleen arrived July 26 at University Hospital in Leipzig. Though babies of her size are often delivered via caesarean section, Jasleen's mother gave birth naturally.

The mother had a previously undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes, doctors discovered. The condition usually develops around the 24th week of pregnancy and can lead to larger-than-average newborn size.

Both daughter and mother are doing well after the birth, though Jasleen remains in the neonatal care unit, doctors said, according to the German newspaper Der Spiegel.
