Luciana Brandt did not expect to get pregnant again at 41, as doctors had told her she had entered ᴍᴇɴᴏᴘᴀᴜsᴇ early. But life had other plans for her…
Luciana Brandt, 41, said she never expected to be pregnant again after giving birth to five children over two decades. The 41-year-old mother of five was very happy when she discovered that she was pregnant with a little girl and was waiting to see how she would be born. Her arrival, however, left not only her speechless but also the doctors, who were impressed by the size of the newborn, which was over 5 kg!
“I’m so happy for her arrival, but I never imagined she would weigh more than five kilograms!” the mother of six told local media.
The “super baby,” Maria Vitória Brandt, was born at 40 weeks by ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ and is healthy. “Good thing I had a C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ again!” Luciana said with a laugh.
The beaming new mom was discharged Thursday from Hospital Maicé, in the municipality of Caçador, Santa Catarina State, per Jam Press. The hospital said babies born there typically weigh between 6 and 8 pounds, so Maria’s size and weight are considered quite unusual.
The facility shared images of the newborn along with a touching message for her family. “Hospital Maicé wishes good health and happiness to little Maria Vitória and her family, and that they receive many blessings,” a hospital spokesperson said.
Luciana’s eldest daughter, Angela Brandt, 23, traveled a long distance to be by her mother’s side and help welcome baby Maria into the world. Dr. Juscelino Euler Oliveira performed the delivery under the care of pediatrician Dr. Priscilla Ramos, Jam Press noted. “Knowing I had little chance of getting pregnant again, I kept faith, and God wanted it too,” Luciana revealed.
Maria wore a pink-patterned outfit and a yellow bejeweled ice cream onesie in photos taken after her birth. One mom recently noted on TikTok that she, too, was not expecting her daughter to be born so big, and the clothes she packed for the hospital were too small. “My chunk is going straight to size 2 and 0-3 month clothes…” she wrote on her viral video, which was accompanied by a crying-laughing emoji.
