Baby girl Jasleen arrived July 26 at University Hospital in Leipzig. Though babies of her size are often delivered via caesarean section, Jasleen's mother gave birth naturally.
The mother had a previously undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes, doctors discovered. The condition usually develops around the 24th week of pregnancy and can lead to larger-than-average newborn size.
Both daughter and mother are doing well after the birth, though Jasleen remains in the neonatal care unit, doctors said, according to the German newspaper Der Spiegel.
