It depends whetehr or not you have had a normal birth before. If you have had a previous caesarean, then the baby should be less than 4kg and there should be no other complications to the pregnancy.

I had a 3.8 kg baby and she was delivered naturally. It also depends on the size of your hips and your weight. If you put on too much you might have to have a cs. I was told to only put on 12 but went up to 22 kg and still had a natural birth.
