Florida woman sets records for birth

Posted by wlpo on February 8, 2015

A Florida woman who delivered a 14.1 pound baby says she didn’t know she was pregnant until her third trimester.

Officials at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital in Tampa say Maxxzandra Ford delivered  her son, Avery,  on January 29. They say the infant is the heaviest born at the hospital and one of the largest-ever born in Florida.

After 18 hours of labor, Ford delivered Avery naturally.  Her new son remains in neonatal intensive care, but will go home soon.

Ford, who also has a 1-year old son and a 5-year-old daughter, says she “just melted”  when she finally held Avery.
