5’1 Mom With A 6’3 Husband Reveals She Broke Her Tailbone Delivering Their ‘Huge’ 22-Inch Baby

He’s now aged two but wears clothes for 5-Year-Olds.

Sharmin Brunell stands at just 5’1” while her husband Graham is over a foot taller at 6’3.” Their height difference came into play when the 21-Year-Old got pregnant, and it happened that Graham’s genes were pretty strong. As Sharmin gave birth to their son, Amare, he was in the 99th percentile for height and too big for her to push out without complications. 

As she delivered her son Amare, the Los Angeles-based broke her tailbone as he was a 22-inch baby.

With the size being a primary factor for an injury, Sharmin, via her TikTok clip, shared she also blamed her position during delivery. She said: “I gave birth laying on my back & I now know it’s the worst position to labor in, but most doctors basically force you to birth in this position since it’s most convenient for them.”

She added: “I was in such terrible pain for 2years [postpartum] that I’d rather give birth ALL natural than my break my tailbone again.”

Her video [below] of revealing her birth injury has earned over 5million views, and the word: “My 5’1” self getting married to a 6’3” man thinking our height difference is so cute” was written over it as Sharmin happily danced. She added, looking less pleased: “Breaks my tailbone giving birth to our 99th percentile baby.”

In the mom’s words, Amare remains massive and wears clothes meant for five-year-olds at two years old.

However, a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, Deena Blumenfeld, agrees women at risk for a tailbone fracture should not be on their backs while pushing. Instead, she recommends upright, forward-leaning positions like lunging. And while tailbone pain isn’t typical during/after childbirth, Deena said it’s likely to happen if a woman has previously broken her tailbone or the baby is very large.
