New York mom gives birth to 15-pound baby girl - 'It was pretty violent'

Interesting A- A A+

A New York mother set a record at a hospital upstate after she gave birth to a baby almost the weight of a bowling ball.

Joy Buckley, of Corning, gave birth on Tuesday to Harper Buckley, a 15-pound-5-ounce baby.

“I felt like I was hit by two tractor-trailers,” Joy told the New York Post on Monday. “It was pretty violent. She got stuck under my ribcage.”

The newborn was the biggest baby born at Arnot Ogden Medical Center, WETM reported, citing records dating back 30 years.

She told the news outlet she "knew she was gonna be big, but I didn't anticipate no 15-pound baby."

Harper was brought to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit after her birthday so doctors could monitor her sugar and oxygen levels.

While Harper was born at just over 15 pounds, more than 8.8 pounds at birth is considered high, according to MedlinePlus. Babies born at a large weight "are often big because the parents are big, or the mother has diabetes during pregnancy."
