The island has welcomed two New Year babies already, with the first baby of the new decade born at 7:58am, with the second baby following a few hours behind at just past noon.
A BHB spokesperson said, “Staff of the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital Maternity Unit have been busy on the first day of 2020, welcoming two New Year’s babies with a possible third on the way. Both babies were expected in the middle of January but decided to make early appearances.
“The first baby of the new decade was born at 7:58am. The little girl weighed in at 7lb 2oz. The second baby followed a few hours behind, born at 12:06pm to parents Keneshia and Terence Taylor. Little Nia Elizabella is just 4lb 1oz.
“The babies and their mothers are healthy and getting some much needed rest.”
