At 8:55 am on January 1, Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South welcomed Ellie Hampton, the first baby born at Texas Health Huguley in 2017. Dr. Darrell Bowyer delivered the 8 pound, 10 ounce baby girl of Sarah and Jeff Hampton. Ellie will join big brothers Layton, Levi, and Graham at their home in Fort Worth.
“Each baby is a celebration of the gift of life, and having the first baby of the year adds even more excitement to the joyous occasion. What a great way to start out the New Year,” said Kathleen Harlow, R.N., Women’s Center Director. Approximately 1200 babies are born at Texas Health Huguley each year.
Besides taking home their bundle of joy, the Hamptons will also take home a special gift basket donated by the Texas Health Huguley Volunteer Auxiliary for the first baby. It includes stuffed animals, clothing items, a photo album and frame, a blanket, toys, diapers and personal care items.
