ALMONTE – The Almonte General Hospital (AGH) welcomed their first baby of 2023 at 5:41 a.m. on New Year’s Day and Audrey Marie Baird was back home in Kinburn that same day in time for dinner.
“Kinburn’s Erika and David Baird celebrated the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve in a special way – by heading to Almonte General Hospital (AGH) for the arrival of their fourth child,” AGH’s communications lead Jane Adams released in a statement today (Jan. 2). “Audrey Marie was born at 5:41 a.m. on New Year’s Day – the first baby born at the hospital in 2023.”
“We loved our midwifery care with midwife Harriett Ann and the entire team at AGH,” mom Erika said following Audrey Marie’s birth.
“I think they are all as excited as we are,” dad David said.
Audrey is Erika and David’s fourth child and the third one born at AGH.
“We’re very comfortable to be here,” David said.
The family lives in Kinburn where Audrey will join her three siblings Sawyer, Clayton and Emily.
In fact, Erika, David and Audrey were heading home to have New Year’s Day dinner with the whole family.
“They are all very excited to meet Audrey,” Erika said. “It’s going to be hectic, but worth it!”
What a wonderful way to celebrate the new year. Congratulations to the Baird family.
