  • My boys were about 13 inches which is just over 30 cm, about 32. Which when you think about the fact that you only dilate to 10cm is crazy. Where is the extra 20 or so cm coming from?

  • Around 14-15 inches, don't know in cm, my hospital works with normal measurments...Idk how the first replier's could have been 19 - that's way too small in terms of cm, and way too big in terms of inches!

  • 35 cm is the average head size. My son had an 38 cm head, he still has a large head now that he is two!!
