At 8:19am on January 3rd, Manchester Memorial Hospital (MMH) welcomed its first baby born in 2014. A baby boy was born to Tasha Bowling and Glenn Anthony Hoskins, Jr. The baby weighed 6lbs, 1oz and measured 18.5 inches. The delivering physicians were Drs. Ian Sink and Sandra Murphy. In honor of the first birth of the New Year, the hospital was pleased to provide the parents with a gift package that included a car seat, stroller, playpen and many other essential items, worth $500.
Manchester Memorial Hospital is committed to helping families have the best experience possible when delivering their newest member. With that in mind, parents are provided with the opportunity to attend childbirth classes throughout their pregnancy. By attending the classes and delivering at MMH, families participating in the classes receive a new car seat and a keepsake plate, along with several other gifts.
The Hospital’s Obstetrics Department also provides massage therapy to mothers upon admission. Professional photography for new babies is available as well as a trained lactation consultant on staff. “With our staff of trained and experienced nurses, including childbirth educators and lactation consultants, we provide family-centered birthing in a safe and comfortable environment,” said Erika Skula, CEO.
Congratulations to the entire family on the birth of their beautiful baby boy!
