Babies born on island’s 47th
AT LEAST FOUR BOUNCING babies were born at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) yesterday.
However, the first Independence baby was a girl born at Bayview Hospital to Jennifer Wosminity.
First to give birth at QEH at 3:26 a.m. was Janelle Scott-Marshall. When she spoke to the SUNDAY SUN, the 32-year-old had not yet decided on a name for her son who weighed seven pounds, six ounces. Scott-Marshall already has a daughter.
She was followed at 7:06 a.m. by Julie Anne Phillips-Castello, 38, who also had not decided on a name for her fourth son. She said she expected a Christmas baby but she was “happy and excited” to welcome her son on Independence Day.
At 9:24, 22-year-old Aka Howell gave birth to Acody Demetry Jack who was due today. She has one daughter.
At least one other baby was expected to be born later in the day.
The mothers were presented with hampers from Supreme Distributors and C.L. Gibbs, distributors of Cussons products, while the Kiwanis Club of Barbados Central made a presentation to Scott-Marshall. (NB)
