Christmas babies- Two boys delivered at QEH

Karen Goddard received the best Christmas gift ever this morning around 9:15 a.m.

The 28-year-old delivered this island’s first Christmas day baby- a bouncing boy – at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH).

Goddard was expecting to deliver her baby in January but she went into labour around 4 a.m. The newborn weighed five pounds, seven ounces.

A happy Goddard told Barbados TODAY she is yet to decide her son’s name. She however assured she would focus on imparting good values to the peaceful infant.

This is the second child for Goddard and her partner Dasheen Belgrave. They already have a two-and-half-year-old son.

A second baby boy was born at the QEH at 1:09 p.m. Shanice Lynch proudly welcomed her second son who weighed just over seven pounds. Both mother and son are doing well.

    I had a brief stay at the QEH. That institution is top class.Only positive things can be said, and I want to express my satisfaction.I think when people are complaining,it is mainly directed to the waiting time in the A&E and not to the quality of service, whilst admitted.
