The Birthing Center at Inland Hospital welcomed its first baby of the New Year today at 12:33am. Sofia was born to Sylvia and James Childers of Dexter, seen in the photo with Sofia and their son, James Jr. The couple also has two teenage daughters.
Sylvia reports that she cried tears of joy when Sofia was born. “It was an overwhelming feeling of happiness,” beamed Sylvia. The Childers said the staff at the Birthing Center at Inland made their experience “awesome” and everyone treated them with kindness and courtesy, not to mention a great sense of humor.
The Birthing Center staff gave the Childers a fun package of gifts to celebrate as the hospital’s first baby of the New Year. Sofia weighed 5.5 pounds when she was born and is 18” long. Dr. William Bradfield with Inland Women’s Health Care assisted with the delivery.
