LHSC welcomes the first London-born baby of 2017

The first baby to be born in London in 2017 arrived safely at London Health Sciences Centre just over three hours into the new year.

The baby girl – yet to be named – was born at 3:10 am weighing 7 lbs. She is the daughter of Rachel Nanton and Jeff High of London, and a little sister to Catie.

The family will be going home today with gift baskets donated by the pharmacist-owners of London and area Shoppers Drug Mart stores. The Children's Health Foundation also included two teddy bears and London Health Sciences Foundation contributed a handcrafted baby blanket to welcome the first London-born baby of 2017.
