A 14-pound baby boy named Asher was born naturally last Thursday, January 26, at the Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, as reported by ABCNews.
After 6 hours of labor, Kendall Stewardson gave birth to her 14-pound baby, one of the biggest baby born naturally in Iowa, without the help of surgery and epidural injection. This is because Kendall is worried that an epidural or cesarean delivery could endager either her or Asher.
Asher Stewardson measures 23 inches long and weighs about 13 pounds and 13 ounces.
According to statistics, only a tenth of 1 percent of all newborns or 1 in every 1,000 weigh more than 11 pounds at birth making Asher’s measurement of 14 pounds a rare incident.
His older brother, Judah, who is now 15 months old weighed a little more than 12 pounds at birth.
