Question
Posted by: Sianleigh | 2010/01/13

Baby weight

When will I no longer be able to give normal birth (by the baby' s weight)? Is there a limit? I am 34 weeks pregnant and my baby now weighs 2.9kg. My doctor recommended 3.8kg and up should not try natural birth.

It really depends on your size, but that would be reasonable.
