In brief: No particular size

Number of vaginal deliveries is a risk factor for pelvic organ prolapse.
For example, a woman with 6 natural births will be more at risk for prolapse than a woman without any children. The relationship between baby weight and prolapse is still controversial.

In brief: No baby

It's just a risk factor not a cause.
I performed prolapse surgery on a 70yo nun last year.
