Nathan Littauer announced today that Baby Janessa Rose Richards was the first baby born at Nathan Littauer Hospital in the New Year. Mother Miranda Cooper welcomed little Janessa on January 5, 2012 at 4:56pm. She weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces and was 20 inches from head to toe. Dr. Samach delivered baby Janessa. This is Miranda’s first child.
Littauer’s Auxiliary presented the mother with a huge basket, adorned with baby gifts- from handmade blankets to gift certificates. “The Auxiliary puts a tremendous amount of thought into the Baby New Year Basket. Co-Chairs Anita Moore and Anita Beck love doing this project and they even include a special gift for Mom, too. What the mother leaves with is really a gift of the heart while being extremely practical as well.” stated Sue McNeil, Director of Volunteer Services at Nathan Littauer.
Both Mom and baby are resting comfortably at the Birthing Center.
