I don't believe there are devils enough in hell to pull a boy out of the arms of a godly mother. ~ Billy Sunday. A mother's love is second only to the love God has for all his children. God is the embodiment of love, and Maxxzandra Ford knows it best as she pushed and pushed to deliver her baby naturally. The child was brought into this world by the faith and toil of his loving mother.
Maxxzandra Ford delivered Avery Ford, the heaviest baby ever born at St. Joseph's Women's Hospital after a shocking 18 hours of labor. She delivered him naturally. As soon as she recovered from labor, she asked the doctors how much her baby weighed. Avery weighed a whopping 14 pounds and 1 ounce at birth.
“It's hard to get our minds around such a whirlwind of a day,I never dreamed we'd get so much love for our BIG baby boy and family.”
He's her third child. She also has two daughters, who weighed in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces and 7 pounds, 14 ounces -- nearly half the size of their older sisters.
Maxxzandra didn't even realize she was pregnant until her third trimester. She said that she didn't feel nauseous or gain any weight which would have otherwise indicated to her that she was pregnant.
Avery was in the neonatal intensive care unit shortly after birth.Dr. Jenelle Ferry explains that older babies sometimes have problems with breathing and blood sugar regulation.They may also have a poor appetite.
Although Avery was the largest baby ever born at St. Joseph's, experts say only one in 100,000 babies weighs more than 14 pounds at birth.
Regardless, Maxxzandra considers the birth of her 13-pounder an accomplishment, especially since she passed up an epidural to opt for a natural birth.
“I think I was in a bit of shock because the birth was natural and I only had gas so I was still in a bit of shock just from that,” said Maxxzandra, explaining that she had to continue reminding herself to think positive thoughts throughout the delivery. "The power of positive thinking during birth, be positive, breathe deep.”
