Three Independence babies welcomed

As Barbados celebrates its 49th year of Independence, three mothers have additional reasons to celebrate as they now have ‘Independence babies.’

Lorna Jennings was grinning from ear to ear when a team from Barbados TODAY visited her at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) this morning, as her baby girl Romona Diana Hall was the first to be delivered at 7:45 a.m.

She weighed a hefty seven pounds nine ounces.

Ronique Brathwaite then welcomed the second baby, a boy, weighing five pounds two ounces at 8:20 a.m.

Shortly after, Shaquan Griffith delivered a bouncing baby boy in Shataj Alleyne.

At least three other babies are expected today, as two other mothers are reportedly in labour at the QEH, while the other is at Bayview Hospital.
