Bay Area Mother Who Didn’t Know She was Pregnant Until Third Trimester Delivers 14 Pound Baby at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital

TAMPA, Fla. (February 5, 2015) – Maxxzandra Ford realized she was pregnant after rapidly gaining weight last Fall.  Because she is a twin and felt so big so fast, she thought she might be having twins herself.  But the first doctor visit brought an even bigger surprise: she was already 35 weeks along.  And the biggest surprise of all was when she gave birth naturally to a bouncing baby boy who tipped the scales at 14.1 pounds. 

Avery Ford sets the record for the heaviest baby born at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital and is one of the largest babies ever born in the state.
