24-year-old mom Kendall Stewardson made history in an Iowa hospital, giving birth to a 13 lb, 12 oz. baby boy without medication at Mercy Medical Center on Thursday.
Yes that’s right, without any sort of medication!
Stewardson told News 8 that she couldn’t talk about the birth of baby Asher because "It wouldn't be TV appropriate," she joked.
Baby Asher was 9 days late and was 23.5 inches long. His older brother family Judah weighed 12 lbs., 1 oz. when he was born. Both Stewardson and her husband Joshua were born weighing more than 10 lbs.
Kendall said she had no relevant medical conditions during her pregnancy. Often large babies can be traced back to gestational diabetes.
Asher sets a record at Mercy, but falls about a pound short of the state record. The largest Iowa baby on record was born in Johnson County in 1980 weighing in at 14 lbs., 13 oz..
Congrats to the new parents!
