Western Baptist welcomes first babies of 2013 | News
PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - For the second consecutive year, Western Baptist Hospital welcomed twin brothers as the first babies born in the region in the new year.
The babies were born at 3:13 and 3:14 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1, to Erika and Derrick Damron of Barlow. Brady Gene weighed 3 pounds, 9 ounces, while Brock Westley weighed 2 pounds, 8 ounces. The proud parents were presented with a gift basket from the hospital.
According to Western Baptist, the Damrons weren’t expecting to meet their boys until March 2, but the boys needed to be delivered nine weeks early because of a blood circulation concern.
The babies are in Western Baptist’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the only one in western Kentucky. Last year’s first babies also benefited from the NICU.
