WINCHESTER, Ontario – It took a while but Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) was pleased to welcome its first baby of 2017 on Jan. 1 at 5:57 pm. Henry Daniel Teasdale weighed 9 pounds, 8 ounces. He is a second son for Julie and Daniel Teasdale and a brother for Jack. The Teasdales live in Bainsville.

“The experience was great and we were actually very surprised when we got there at noon and the nurses told us we would likely be the first baby of the year,” says father Daniel. “Henry will be welcomed home by a very excited big brother Jack.”

In fact, the Teasdales went home the same night and will be supported by their midwife in the days ahead. Henry was delivered by midwife Sarah Tucker, one of the newest members of Gentle Beginnings Midwifery Clinic. She was assisted by midwife Celine D’Arcy. “I assessed Julie at home and then we came to the hospital. It was super exciting and fun to start off the new year with a new baby,” said Sarah.
