6.795kg baby delivered via C-section

A mother with diabetes mellitus reportedly gave birth to a baby weighing 6.795kg, presumably the heaviest baby, if not one of the heaviest, in Nagaland. The baby was delivered by cesarean section at Belho’s clinic, Dimapur on January 24, 2023. The baby was delivered by Dr. Mhasiseno Belho and was taken care of by Dr. Akumtoshi from Zion hospital.
According to doctor, the baby developed respiratory distress due to a condition called ‘Transient Tachypnea of Newborn’ and also developed ‘hypoglycemia’ due to the large size of the baby.
Doctor said that the baby was immediately shifted to NICU at Zion hospital under the care of Dr.Akumtoshi.
On further investigation, the baby also had an acyanotic congenital heart disease without heart failure.
Nasal CPAP for respiratory distress and immediate correction of hypoglycemia was done, doctor said.
The baby was taken good care of by NICU and Pediatric staff of Zion hospital and has now fully recovered.
