Iden Velasquez had been under the care of Dr. Daniel Gonzalez of Ambergris Hope’s Clinic during her pregnancy and due to her delicate state Dr. Gonzalez recommended that it was best for her to have the baby in the city.
Iden delivered bouncing baby Erolynn at 9:00 a.m. at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital who weighed 6lbs, 14oz and measured 51cm in length.
Being the first baby of the New Year comes with fame -- and gifts. That one lucky newborn is usually on the news, and often the family receives some sort of gift package.
What other perks come with having a New Year's baby? On top of the gift baskets and the publicity, there are a few superstitions surrounding those born on New Year’s Day.
-- Babies born on the New Year are said to be lucky for life.
-- The family of a New Year's baby will have good luck that year.
-- New Year’s babies won't be visited by evil, and can't be drowned or hung.
-- A baby born on New Year's is said to have great fertility and have a green thumb.
Of course none of the above outweighs the joy of a healthy baby. Congratulations Iden and Elroy on the birth of you lovely baby – Erolynn!
