Home TIS EXCLUSIVES A 15-pound, 15-ounce 'miracle' baby


A 15-pound, 15-ounce ‘miracle’ baby

In New York, a mother gives birth to to a record 15-pound baby girl last week.  Although, she is going through a recovery phase. Harper Buckley is a 15-pounds, 15-ounces and measuring about 23-inches long baby. The heaviest baby ever born at Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, New York. Some of the speculations also suggest that she could be the heaviest baby ever born in the state.

“I knew she was going to be big but I didn’t anticipate no 15-pound baby,” mom Joy Buckley told WETM.  Buckley calls Harper a “miracle baby,” because the mom was once told by doctors she had about a 15 percent chance to conceive naturally after being diagnosed with poly-cystic ovarian syndrome, The Washington post reports.

Buckley suffered from years of infertility. But, after some time she gave birth to a 11 pounds baby boy. She also considered the option of adoption as well.

On March 12, Buckley and her husband welcomed their third child, The Washington Post reports.

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the Average birthrates are between 5.5 and 8.8 pounds. The heaviest baby ever born in the U.S. weighed 22 pounds, according to Guinnes World Record. But, he died 11 hours later.

However, by the grace of God, Buckley and Harper are in a good state. God bless these babies!
