Baby Anila, weighed in at 5.725 kilograms (12 pounds and 6 ounces), and was born naturally, with mum Armonita not using any painkillers.   

The maternity team at North Mid acted quickly when Armonita said she wanted a natural birth, and helped make sure that she was comfortable and supported throughout.

Armonita, who lives in Edmonton, said: “My other children were all quite heavy when they were born but Anila is definitely the heaviest.

“The midwives here have been amazing and I’m glad that Anila is healthy and happy.”

Maria Kane, Chief Executive of North Middlesex University Hospital, said: ‘Our maternity team are very proud of all the babies born at the North Mid, and especially proud of Baby Anila and her mum. We wish them a wonderful life ahead.’  

North Mid’s maternity service offers modern, state-of-the-art facilities to expectant mothers and their families. The service has been rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission, the regulator for health and social care services in England.
