Briton gives birth to biggest baby ever born naturally in Spain
MADRID (AFP) - A 40-year-old British woman gave birth on Wednesday to the biggest baby ever born naturally in Spain - a girl weighing 6.2kg.
Maxime Marin delivered the baby at 4.43am at the Hospital Marina Salud in the Mediterranean city of Denia, the hospital said in a statement.
Larger babies are often delivered via caesarean section, but Marin did not even need an epidural, a painkiller delivered into the spine during childbirth.
Marin, who lives in Spain with her partner who is from Colombia, said she knew the baby would be big "but not that big", the statement said.
