First Newborn of 2016 Arrives at Whitesburg ARH
Whitesburg ARH Hospital welcomed its first baby of the new year born on January 2, 2016.
At 1:53 p.m., Carrie Hall, Certified Nurse Midwife, delivered Brody Dewight Adams. He weighed 6 pounds and 12.2 ounces, and was 19 inches long. Parents are Brent and Morgan Adams and they reside in Whitesburg, Ky. Brody also has two big sisters, Neveah and Brenleigh.
When asked why she chose the name Brody Dewight, Morgan said: "I just liked Brody, but Dewight is after Brody’s maternal grandfather. I was so nervous about delivering this baby, but it was an amazing experience. I am very blessed, and Carrie and the nursing staff have been wonderful.”
As the first baby born at Whitesburg ARH in 2016, the hospital gave Brody and his family a large, baby bathtub full of items every baby needs including a baby monitor.
Whitesburg ARH Hospital offers private labor-delivery-recovery rooms with private baths in a home-like atmosphere where the focus is on a family-centered birthing experience. Once the baby is born, the hospital offers rooming in for parents and baby to enhance newborn teaching with a newborn nursery nurse available and dedicated to this service 24 hours a day.
