Mother Sarah knew she wanted to deliver her third baby at the same place where her first two children were born – at Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH). Having the first WDMH Christmas baby of 2022 was an added bonus!
Sarah’s daughter Aila was born on Christmas Day at 5:25 pm. Aila’s older siblings (a four-year-old sister and a seven-year-old brother) stayed home with Dad in Ottawa to open their Christmas presents.
“I am very happy,” said Sarah. “Everything went very well. Thank you very much.”
“I am so glad I had the opportunity to help with the miracle of life this Christmas at the Winchester Hospital,” notes Dr. Shamsa Deeb who delivered the baby. “This is the family’s third baby at the hospital and I’m grateful to have been with them for all of them. The labour and delivery went very well with the exceptional support from the WDMH team that I am very happy to be a part of.” The WDMH team provided little Aila with a festive hat, mitts and booties.
Congratulations to the whole family!
